Lucy King

Client Relationship Manager

 

How would you describe your role and what do you enjoy most about it?

I am one of four Client Relationship Managers and specifically work with James de Lisle Wells, supporting him to provide a great service to his clients.  Day to day I am their first point of contact and available at the end of the phone for anything non-advice related.  I produce the review packs that James takes to client meetings, implement any recommendations made and help with all other client focussed tasks. I find that no two days in the office are the same and most enjoy the variety that this brings.

What are you trying to achieve in your role at Ermin Fosse?

I am studying for my diploma in financial planning as I want to broaden my knowledge of the industry and advice process.  Achieving my diploma will help to develop my skills further and mean I can get involved in more complicated work behind the scenes here.  I’ll have a better understanding of the financial planning journey which I think will enhance the service I provide to our clients.

How do you enjoy spending your spare time?

Having recently bought a house with my husband we are spending a lot of time in the garden getting it summer ready.  We also like to spend weekends with family down in Devon and trips away with friends.

Emily Loveridge

Emily Loveridge

Client Relationship Manager

How would you describe your role and what do you enjoy most about it?

My role is to closely work alongside Nigel as his Client Relationship Manager. This involves ensuring that all his clients business is processed efficiently, arranging and preparing Annual Reviewing Meetings and ultimately being the first point of contact for his clients if they have any queries. 
The parts of my role I enjoy the most are interacting with our clients and getting stuck into processing new business cases. 

What are you trying to achieve in your role at Ermin Fosse?

I strive to ensure our clients receive the level of service they would expect and have been promised. In order to achieve this, I am keen to further develop my knowledge so that each client continues to receive a professional and competent experience. 

How do you enjoy spending your spare time?

Creating memories with my family and friends! I love to make lots of plans throughout the winter months so that summer can be filled with music concerts, festivals and holidays. I will also now be spending my weekends doing lots of walking as Ermin Fosse prepares to complete the Three Peaks Challenge in July!

Quincy de Lisle Wells

Quincy de Lisle Wells

Trainee Office Dog

Following a shaky start to life at Ermin Fosse, Quincy has found his feet.

He hopes to rise through the ranks here and head up a 'client welcoming' department, although he only manages to excercise his skills when he escapes from the top floor office.

Fortunately, our offices are a stones throw away from a big park which keeps him entertained (and tires him out!).

 

 

Jack Barthorp

Jack Barthorp

Senior Office Dog

My name is Jack, I am 12 years old and after a long and illustrious career being a faithful gun dog and companion, I am now pretty much retired and enjoying a life of eating (still quite a lot of eating), sleeping and the occasional walk around the Cotswold Hills.
Coming to the office could be a bit more exciting than it is, but it is improved when I manage to purloin one or two of Quincy’s pigs’ ears when he’s not looking.

Sarah Sillars

I particularly enjoy communicating with our clients and assisting them in any way I can.

I am focused on delivering the highest level of client satisfaction and in order for me to better achieve this, I am always looking to increase my knowledge within Financial Planning 

How do you enjoy spending your spare time?

As one daughter has left for University, I am now only taxi driver to one younger daughter travelling to endless hockey matches. When not standing on the sidelines cheering, I love to go walking with our dog, a mad cocker spaniel!

Lyndsey Lloyd

Client Relationship Manager

How would you describe your role and what do you enjoy most about it?

I am a Client Relationship Manager working closely with James Hollway. I love being able to get to know our clients on a personal basis and assist with queries they may have. My role involves contacting providers, implementing new business, getting information ready for annual reviews and assisting James with any information he may require to provide recommendations.

What are you trying to achieve in your role at Ermin Fosse?

I am looking to increase my knowledge within the financial industry and have a better understanding of the advice process. I am currently studying for LP2 – Financial service products and solutions and hope to complete a diploma in Financial Services so I can increase my skills and be the best and most effective Client Relationship Manager I can be. 

How do you enjoy spending your spare time?

I love spending my spare time going on long walks with my partner and our dog. We have a 1 year old Labrador so he is still a big bundle of energy so it’s great exploring new places to take him.
