Tim Woodman – Practice Principal


Tim has been in financial services for over 23 years having started his early career at Pearl Assurance with a local ‘book’ where he established his ‘grounding’ in the financial services profession. After moving into banking with Lloyds Bank and further developing his financial credentials he joined forces with a Lloyds Bank colleague setting up an IFA practice. Deciding to move into Wealth Management Tim then built a very successful practice with St. James’s Place Wealth Management which he ran for 14 years.


Semi-retirement and a change of pace beckoned and together with his wife, he broke into holiday letting – developing an old brick yard into Brick Kiln Barns Holiday Cottages which they still run today!


However Tim has always been drawn to finance and really enjoys helping people achieve their financial goals and dreams. It was really a natural move for him to develop himself further by moving into commercial finance as a consultant where he is looking forward to continuing to help business clients with their commercial finance needs.


Outside of work Tim is married to Michelle and between them they have 4 children and the family Spanish Water Dog, Ted! Tim enjoys the outdoors, is a keen cyclist and ‘boater’ when he gets the time! He has always had a passion for flying and in 2015 achieved a childhood dream of becoming a qualified Helicopter pilot. His other passion is cars and has been fortunate enough to own some of the nicest cars available today.
