We have clients who have been with us since our beginning because of the service they receive and we want to ensure that remains a focus as our client numbers, and office locations, increase. Sophie’s investment experience and expertise and her focus on client service will be invaluable to the board. She knows the business intimately and has a passion for customer satisfaction and the other directors look forward to working closely with her.”
