A Lincoln University graduate, with a background in farming, John began his financial career in 1987.
John is proud that WealthDesign isn’t owned by a faceless corporate, dictating which investments or companies to use. He only recommends to you products and services that have been independently researched, and companies that he trusts.
Married to Kristine, and proud father to Fran and Meg, John is a dab hand with a shotgun. This is not to deter male suitors for his daughters, rather for the duck-shooting season – stress relief with a bang!
John and Kristine have 50 acres on the edge of Palmerston North, which ensures he balances out all that paperwork at the office. This involves gumboots, talking to the cattle and plenty of shocks from electric fences!
When not helping his clients or farming, John likes to jump on his mountain bike or throw his golf clubs in the back of the car and head to the golf course.
