Glyn is the founder and Chairman of Active Chartered Financial Planners.
Glyn’s career in financial services began in 1974 with the Co-operative Insurance Services where he stained until 1986 when he joined The Allied Group in Guisborough. Eventually Glyn progressed to the role of Director at Allied and was instrumental in developing its mortgage, life insurance, pension and investment portfolios. His work there also involved firmly establishing the company in the local area. When Allied closed in 2000, Glyn formed his own company – Active Financial Services, in order to ensure that his clients received continued advice in the local area. Since then, he has helped steer the business through steady growth and development.
Glyn has moved on from his role as a Financial Adviser and now contributes to Active in his position as Chairman. As an ambassador for Active, Glyn is often seen representing the firm’s charitable activities including those linked to the Middlesbrough & Teesside Philanthropic Foundation. As one of the company directors and a very experienced and highly respected financial expert, Glyn also has responsibilities in staff development, mentoring and recruitment. He also spends his time monitoring and promoting Active’s staff rewards programme.
