After an extensive career with insurance companies and institutional investment management, Jock wanted to leverage this experience to help individuals and families meet their long-term financial goals. He had always been impressed by Burgundy’s strong reputation, focus on value and dedication to client care. He was thrilled to join the Private Client Group and has been an active member of the Burgundy team ever since.

Jock values the time he has devoted to the community. In addition to his current memberships, he was a former Director of the Granite Golf Club and West Park Healthcare Centre Foundation, and served as President and a Director of The Badminton & Racquet Club.
