Nick is, quite simply, the instigator of Alexander House. Having spent a career in senior positions in a number of large financial services institutions, Nick eventually left the corporate world to start his own business. He is one of the founding directors of our company, which is named after his son Alex.
Nick is full of passion and enthusiasm for the financial services industry. His goal is to build the best team of advisers possible - and to keep the rest of us all suitably motivated and on the right path. His knowledge of the industry, product providers and suppliers is second to none, and this ensures we can always provide you with the best service at the best price.
In his spare time, Nick can usually be found ‘up north’ being dragged round by his three huge, gorgeous golden retrievers, Alfie, Poppy and Archie. He is up and about at 5am most days and only stops when his Duracell batteries give up!
As one of the founder Financial Planners to help establish Alexander House, Gareth quickly progressed to develop, recruit and motivate a team of Advisers across the north. More recently in addition to building his own business, Gareth’s role has broadened further to drive scale and revenue growth nationally. Working with Advisers, Introducers, Compliance and Business Operations teams, this is a key role, harmonising commercial success with strong ethics and excellent client outcomes.
Away from work, Gareth balances the joys of a young family with his passion for golf, and his ambition to visit every country in the world.
