Get to know Russell

I joined Flying Colours in March 2020 after working in the banking sector for a high street bank, gaining numerous qualifications along the way.

I worked with the general public as a local branch manager for more than a decade, where service and building relationships was essential in the development of creating lifelong relationships with clients.

I work now alongside the advisers creating life planning solutions. I enjoy working with all types of clients, and as an aspiring financial adviser I’m picking up knowledge on my journey.

Outside of work, I enjoy keeping fit.

What do love about your job?
Working with my colleagues and picking up as much knowledge as possible.
What do you love about Flying Colours?
That we are supporting clients with long-term financial planning relationships and suitable advice to help them achieve their financial objectives.
Absolute loves
I love to spend time with the family, go cycling, and watch football, mainly supporting my local team Scunthorpe United (which hasn’t been fun over the last 2-3 years 😣).
Pet hates
People who are rude or not honest and animal cruelty.
