Day-to-day life at McCreas
My day consists mainly of client meetings and report preparation. I normally start the day with a solid plan which I throw out by 10am and progress through plans B to D. Before I know it, it's 6pm and time to get home to see the kids before bedtime - my days are never boring!
I help clients with financial services including:
- Pensions & Retirement Planning
- Tax Planning
- Inheritance Tax Planning
- Long Term Care Planning
- Business Protection
Life before McCreas
My life before McCreas can be summed up in one word - Rugby! I played the sport professionally for 14 years (which explains my schoolboy looks!) and I was fortunate enough to represent Edinburgh, Glasgow and Scotland.
Favourite thing about working for McCreas
I have to say my favourite thing about working at McCreas is the people; my colleagues and clients alike are all great to work with, which makes it easy to come into work each day.
Out of the office
I still love rugby and play it when I get the chance. I have an 8 year old son and a 7 year old daughter so there is never a shortage of things to do. In between ferrying them to parties and social events I also coach their mini rugby team and help out at a few local Glasgow rugby teams; I have a level 3 Rugby coaching certificate - an additional string to my bow, should I decide to get an office rugby team together.
I also love a bit of DIY and gardening and given five minutes of peace, a good book.
I grew up in Dubai (before it was fashionable) and where my house was, is now where the Burj al Arab hotel sits. Not a bad place to grow up!
