BBS, Dip. BS, AFA
Jon is the CEO of Lifetime having joined the business at the start of 2017 in the capacity of National Lending and Northern Region Sales Manager.
Jon has been involved in the financial services industry for over 20 years both here and overseas. After studying Business at university, he ventured into banking and then insurance before traveling to London where he lived for a number of years. In 2003 Jon and his wife Anita returned to New Zealand and decided to make Tauranga their home. Here, Jon took a role as a Mortgage Adviser working alongside a leading real estate firm where he helped grow the operation. In 2007 Jon moved to become a Risk Adviser and at the same time his business entered into a joint venture with a large general insurance brokerage to provide a full offering to the market. Jon was the General Manager for this business as it expanded around the country before it was merged with Lifetime.
Jon is an Authorised Financial Adviser, and as a member of Financial Advice New Zealand (FANZ) is well placed given his experience to understand the importance of the Client and Adviser relationship.
Jon and Anita have two boys, Dan and Matt. Jon is keen on all sports, having played rugby and cricket, although is more of a 'spectator' these days, but is still involved through the coaching of his son’s teams when needed. He also enjoys fishing and golf, and camping with the family in the summer months.
