John spent almost 12 years in Financial Services before founding the company in 1984 and is extremely proud that some of his existing clients have been with him since day one.
With almost 50 years in the profession, John gained a strong reputation in Life and Critical Illness Protection. This led to his creation of the Guide to Critical Illness Assurance in 1993, which won 19 Protection awards, culminating in the prestigious ‘Lifetime Achievement’ award in 2010.
John is a keen Bridge player, which he enjoys even more when he wins. He also loves hosting family get togethers, where he can show off his expertise on the BBQ, or slicing a salt beef brisket, a skill he learned as a young boy at his parent’s deli.
