Meet the Team Member: Adam Nettleship

July 4, 2023

"To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart."*

This month we meet Adam Nettleship, the Managing Director of Bigmore Associates. With Bigmores for over 20 years, Adam first crossed the threshold when on work experience fresh out of University. From that point on he was hooked on financial services. 

Having worked closely with Bigmores previous owner John Davies, when it was time for John to retire, Adam was well placed with skills, enthusiasm and energy to be the natural successor.

He continues to live the values of Bigmore Associates and lead the next generation onto even greater things.
