Stef was born in Leicester and eventually moved to Nottingham, he’s spent a lot of his time in the East Midlands! He describes himself as competitive and a perfectionist – even in his hobbies.
He has worked in the financial services industry for over 16 years and has spent time as a lender and a broker – he also has valuable experience to bring to the role as a business owner himself. He is celebrating his 6th year at Goodman Corporate Finance!
When he’s not on the grind, Stef enjoys all things outdoorsy – this includes fishing, going for long walks, 5k runs, and attending races like Cheltenham. When at home, Stef and his partner Kelly enjoy property renovating and interior design, they have both recently moved back to the midlands after some time in Devon. Stef has a collection of guitars – acoustic, bass, and electric! He enjoys music from the 60s and 70s and is a fan of rock, country, and The Beatles!
Typically Stef wakes up around 6 am every morning, after enjoying a healthy breakfast (usually a smoothie or porridge) he will head out on an early morning walk with the dog and get to the laptop by around 7:30 or 8 am. Once all the emails are out of the way, Stef heads out on the road to visit clients and introducers.
On days in the office, his time is spent finishing paperwork, on Teams meetings, or important calls. Stef’s meetings generally run from 10 am until 4 pm, after this he gets on with some networking.
When the workday is over, Stef heads for a run or to the gym, he believes that his diary is really important but advocates that you cannot plan for everything!
sometimes he sits down in a more informal setting with introducers and lenders for a curry and beers. He believes it is always important to get to know clients and introducers on a personal level to build a long-standing relationship.
On the weekends, Stef and Kelly usually try to lie in and have breakfast with each other before heading out on a 5-mile walk. They exercise together and enjoy a takeaway night to take a break from cooking!
Days off are a chance to zone out from work and get on with hobbies such as going out for drinks, guitar, catching up with friends, and fishing
