Tilney Smith and Williamson has announced the expansion of its Exeter office following the appointment of Neil Sparkes as a financial planner.
The news comes on the back of the recent appointments of Neil Thornton as a financial planner and Will Matthewman as an investment manager.
Sparkes has more than 30 years’ financial services experience and he joins from Francis Clark Financial Planning where he initially worked as a paraplanner, and later as a financial planner.
Prior to Francis Clark, Sparkes worked as a financial planner at Barclays Life and NFU Mutual.
Additionally, he is a member of the Personal Finance Society and the Chartered Insurance Institute.
Mark Wilkins, managing partner of Tilney Smith and Williamson’s Exeter office, said: “I am delighted that Neil is joining Tilney Smith and Williamson at this exciting time for our Exeter office.
“As we continue to see growing demand for our services from across the West Country, it is essential that we continue to expand our team by appointing good people like Neil to work with our clients. Neil has extensive financial services experience and I know he will bring an enormous amount to our business and clients.”
Sparkes added: “I am extremely pleased to be joining such a fantastic organisation whose vision and values are closely aligned to my own. I look forward to providing clients both new and existing with the best possible service and financial advice to help them achieve their financial goals.”
