We’re delighted to welcome on board our newcomers to the team this month.
Firstly, we’re excited to introduce Gordon Rodham to the Furnley House team.
Gordon joins us this month as our new Head of Business Development. Supporting Furnley House across all three of our offices; Leicester, Leamington Spa and Magherafelt in Northern Ireland, he is responsible for working closely with our advice team and the ongoing development of how we engage with our professional connections.
A Coach not a Manager
Gordon loves working with and developing people. He embraces coaching and is currently in the middle of sitting the CIPD accreditation a professional HR qualification that is all about enhancing peoples working environment.
A little about his professional career
Prior to starting at Furnley House, Gordon worked in business development for an accountancy firm, where he was tasked with opening doors and introducing new clients to the firm. As a result, he can support our advisers and help them develop new opportunities, whilst also sharing the methods he has used for success.
And Outside of Work
Gordon has two young children, is a Newcastle United season ticket holder and likes to try extreme sports! Despite being scared of heights, Gordon has climbed Ben Nevis the north face, he has also been parachuting and has flown chipmunk aerobatic planes. His most interesting experience was spending three nights camping under the stars in the Amazon followed by a four-day trek to Machu Picchu.
Introducing Aarti Bharakada
We’re also delighted to welcome and introduce Aarti Bharakada as a Client Relationship Manager. Based in Leicester, she will be an extra point of contact for our clients to engage with and she’ll work with the financial advisers to ensure we continue to provide the high level of service that our clients expect.
We believe that recruiting the right people will help us to fulfil our mission statement “to help more people lead the life they want to live”.
