Don has more than 35 years’ experience working in financial services and has established a large number of clients who he regularly advises. Over the years, he’s been fortunate enough to help many people achieve their financial goals and arrive at retirement with enough money to maintain a contented lifestyle – something which gives him great job satisfaction.



Don is married to Tracy. In his spare time, he enjoys a good walk in the countryside which keeps him fit (along with the social games of golf he can squeeze in!) He also enjoys watching sport on TV, especially a good game of Rugby League. More recently, he and Tracy have started to play tennis, something they both enjoy as a pastime.
