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
  • Investments
  • Tax Planning
  • Inheritance Tax Planning
  • Long Term Care Planning
  • Protection
  • 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.

Fun fact

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!
