Welcome to the team - Brad

We're pleased to introduce to you our newest member of the CHN family, Mortgage and Protection Consultant - Brad Crowther-Hirst.

We thought it would be a great idea to let you get to know Brad a little more, so what better than a quick Q&A.


What’s your background?

I am from a banking background working mainly in branch. Having worked as an IFA for almost 12 years, I have made the decision to specialise in Mortgages and Protection as I see this as such an important and crucial area of financial planning for my clients


What is something your clients have to deal with that you want to fix?

I want to ensure all of my clients have a robust "Plan-B" in place for their finances as you just never know what is around the corner. I also want to ensure quality advice is always available, especially at the moment.


What is the biggest misconception people have about your job?

That people can do it themselves! As a mortgage & Protection professional I will ensure that people aren't settling for something that will do, but are getting the best deal for them given their objectives and circumstances.


What’s the best advice you could give to someone coming into the industry?

Be humble, gracious, always live by integrity and learn from others


What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

I enjoy camping with my family, walking and the pub


What's your favourite Film?

So many, but probably Lost Boys


What's your top 3 favorite books?

1) The Tiger Who Came For Tea

2) The Hungry Caterpillar

3) ABCs

(Don't get much opportunity to read anymore with a toddler in the house)


What 3 words would your friends use to describe you?



And I guess... Modest! Ha


What are three items you’d take with you to a deserted island?

My Fiancee

My Toddler

My copy of The Tiger Who Came To Tea


What are three things that would make your bucket list?

Owning a Motorhome

Visiting Las Vegas

Seeing the Northern Lights


Are you an early bird, or night owl?

I'm pretty good at lunchtime


What was your first job?

I was a vet's assistant


Brad will be able to assist with any mortgage or protection queries, don't hesitate to give us a call. 


As a mortgage is secured against your home, it could be repossessed if you do not keep up the mortgage repayments.
