Nottingham-based wealth manager Fiscal Engineers has recruited a new member to its senior team.

David Jones has joined the company as senior financial planner, bringing more than 20 years of investment industry experience to his new role.

As well as advising individual clients and devising bespoke strategies, he will have oversight of all financial planning at the firm and sit on the business’s Investment and Risk Committee.

He said: “I’ve been aware of Fiscal Engineers’ reputation for a long time. The company is extremely well known for the quality of its advice and how well it looks after clients.

“But what has amazed me is that the reality even exceeds the reputation. The collective focus on achieving the best possible outcomes for clients is truly exceptional.

“The overall sense of a ‘Fiscal family’ is also unique. It’s obvious that everyone here shares an extraordinary passion for going beyond expectations and seeing clients flourish.”

Michelle Aitken

Mansfield-based housebuilder Rippon Homes has appointed a new field sales manager in Michelle Aitken.

She joins from Redrow Homes, where she had worked for 14 years.

Aitken said: “Rippon Homes really appealed to me due to being a smaller, family-oriented business in comparison to a larger PLC where I was working before.

“The transition has been great. The members of staff are very close-knit, and I feel like my input is valued on wider decisions.

“No one day is the same in this job which I love. My main responsibilities are assisting the Sales Manager and supporting the site teams. I am making sure the developments are looking their best, liaising with our customers to ensure a 1st class journey. I also get to travel around a lot between the developments and the head office.

“I’m really enjoying being with the team and helping to put a smile on their face. I want to keep learning so I can be the best at what I am doing and flourish in this new role.”
