Having been in the building trade for over 18 years with the same company, it was a now or never moment for James when he made the decision to become a Mortgage Adviser. James felt if he wanted to progress and achieve more, he needed to move on. After taking an admin role to allow him to study to become a Mortgage Adviser, James is now CeMap qualified and is excited by the amazing opportunity within the Penguin Team.
James’ goal is to continue to learn, develop and become a fully qualified Financial Planner for Penguin.
James has been married since 2012 and has two amazing boys, Jack and Toby, with his wife Ashleigh. In their spare time they love nothing more than visiting their favourite UK theme parks. James also enjoys attending the gym, walking and occasionally reading his positivity books.
Away from work, James’ passions are football and Rugby League – and in particular, Manchester United and St Helens. James was also fortunate in 2019 to bump into two of his favourite St Helens players in Manchester but unfortunately, he froze and just waved as they uncomfortably walked by.
