We’ve always been proud of our team… they are pretty awesome!
And in recent months we’ve had so many internal staff promotions that we have been in a constant state of congratulations.
We’d love you to join in our communal ‘high five’ as we celebrate the following people…
Emily joined the First Financial family back in 2016. She started as a Client Service Manager within the Client Service Team and built a strong foundation for her progression. In 2018 she moved into an Associate Adviser role supporting Nick Thomas, where she continued her studies and learnt more about the industry.
Emily has now returned to her roots as the Client Service Team Manager, where she can use her extensive skills to guide the entire team and support the growth of our next generation.
Daniel joined us as a university graduate and embraced his role as a Client Service Administrator. As his experience grew, he was promoted within the team to Client Service Manager and we now celebrate his promotion to an Adviser Assistant for Adam Ezerins.
We are confident that Daniel will continue to grow within the organisation, and we look forward to his next steps.
Along a similar path to Daniel, David also joined us as a university graduate in the Client Service Administrator role. He has now moved into the more technically focused position of Paraplanner and we know he will bring valuable contributions to the team.
Gavin’s First Financial journey started around nine years ago when he joined the business as Chris Crough’s Associate Adviser. His dedication and aptitude saw him gain a promotion to Financial Adviser and today we applaud his rise to the Senior Adviser position.
“Wow, that has gone quickly! It’s been almost nine years to the day when I first started as Chris Crough’s Associate Adviser back at Williams St, what a great journey it has been.
The business has not only supported my growth as an adviser but also a human, I’ve forged lifelong friendships and found a fiancé along the way and I’m very much looking forward too what this new opportunity brings.”
Luckily for us, policy making wasn’t where his heart lay, so he re-joined our team in 2018 as a Paraplanner. We are now excited to see his progression as he has been promoted to Associate Adviser to support Stef Costa.
Our people are at the heart of our success
As we said, our people are awesome… and this is why we are always so pleased to see them grow within their roles and continually develop their skills. We take pride in the supportive culture we have developed because we know it is a rarity in our industry.
