Kym’s career started in 1990 with a large regional IFA as the Administration Manager where she was responsible for all aspects of the administration team and back office systems, which were located across the South West.

Her expertise lies in her ability to multi-task whilst running a successful, pro-active team. Kym has been instrumental in developing, designing and implementing the client services systems which serve the many and varied needs of our clients.
