Meet the Team

Stuart Munro – Director & Financial Adviser

I started in the insurance industry straight from school some 35 odd years ago and have worked for various companies gaining various experiences. I first started with General accident a working in the life department and after several years there I joined a small Independent Financial Advisor as a trainee. I then joined Scottish Equitable where I gained invaluable experience in the pensions market before moving on to Albany Life where I had experience in the investment market, both onshore and offshore as well as getting a sound knowledge of trust work. A move back to Scottish Equitable followed to gain further experience in the ever changing pensions market and then onto Friends to specialise in investments and the ever-changing investment and trust market. Around 12 years ago the whole insurance industry was going through a massive change and I felt it was time to branch out into the Independent Financial Advisor market, setting up Curo Advisers Limited.

Ian Crocker - Director & Financial Adviser

I have over twenty three years' experience in the Financial Services Industry, and in that time, I have moved from working in a more direct sales role, with several major insurance companies, including Save and Prosper, Guardian Financial Services and Sun Life of Canada, to the IFA sector, in which I started in 1993. Since starting Curo with my business partner Stuart in 2004, I have also assumed the responsibility for the compliance functions within the company, a role that is always at the foremost of any reputable company strategy. I possess significant experience in all aspects of financial planning, both corporate and personal, investing considerable time and effort to ensure that my client's needs are met to their satisfaction. I am married with two children, who keep me very busy at the end of my working week.

Gareth Williams – Para-Planner

I am a Welsh-speaking graduate and have worked in the finance industry in a variety of roles for over 35 years. Over the past 25 years, I have worked as an independent financial advisor in a number of South Wales firms, in and around the Cardiff area. Prior to this, I was a Manager with the Woolwich Building Society, both in South Wales and the London area. I have worked with Curo Advisers for over 10 years and am now undertaking a consultative and supportive role where my wealth of experience in investments, savings, life insurance and pensions is being maximised to bring benefits to our clients.

Alex Lewis – Mortgage & Protection Adviser

I joined Curo Advisers at the start of my financial career to learn the ropes from the ground up. Having come from a background of client facing roles in the fitness industry, I'm passionate about building relationships with people and I pride myself on getting to know clients' goals and being able to deliver those results. Having been a member of Curo since April 2014 I have already learned more than I thought possible and am very keen to pass on this knowledge to my clients in order to help them with their needs, ranging from mortgages to protection. I believe that in today's world it is more important than ever to be wise with your money and protect your family and your own future, something that we pride ourselves on being able to deliver.

Chris Williamson – Mortgage & Protection Adviser

I qualified as a CeMap mortgage adviser in 2003 but left the industry shortly afterwards to pursue a successful career in a completely different direction. I worked as a depot manager within the kitchen trade for 10 years where I prided myself on excellent customer service. The level of service given led to many repeat orders from long standing customers. I re-entered the financial services sector in 2013 and have been working on a self-employed basis for Curo ever since.

Jane Fullbrook – Office Manager

I have worked in the financial/insurance industry for over 35 years starting fresh from school with General Accident as an administrative clerk with the motor insurance department before moving to the life department. I then moved to Standard Life Assurance before taking a career break to raise my family. I joined Curo in 2006 as Office Manager. I am responsible for overseeing the day to day running of the office and ensuring that our advisers have the level of back office support they need to provide our client's with a good service. We are an independent, whole of market company meaning that we can offer a great array of products from a large number of providers to our client's. I frequently greet and speak to clients and providers alike on the telephone and pride myself in the level of service we as a company provide.

Samantha Crocker - Administrator

I started my career working in general insurance with Legal and General in 1998. After starting a family, I then began working in Customer Service in the utilities industry, a role that I enjoyed and which I continued to work in for eleven years, while raising my children and studying part time for a Social Sciences degree with The Open University, from which I graduated in 2014. In 2012 I joined Curo as an Administrator. I enjoy all aspects of my role, especially dealing with clients and any queries that they may have.
