Background

He attended Flaxmere College where he was a foundation student, the Head Boy and Captain of the school 1st XI cricket team. On leaving school, he moved to Auckland and joined the Royal New Zealand Navy as a weapons technician and met his wife, Yvette. Having started a family, they elected to move back to Hawke’s Bay. Brad then worked in several sales and account management roles before beginning his financial services career with a well-known Hawke’s Bay financial planning practice in 2014.

In 2018, he joined Gary Hemmings and established Common Sense Financial Planning. A Financial Adviser (FA) FSP360446 and an Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF®), Brad provides financial advice and KiwiSaver, investment and retirement planning, and personal insurance. He has a National Certificate in Financial Services and is completing a Bachelor of Business Studies at Massey University.

He has joined Plus4 Insurance Solutions to provide his clients with the collective benefits of belonging to a national insurance adviser and broking group.

Philosophy

Brad is passionate about helping people from all walks of life find their vision of true wealth. That means helping define what true wealth looks like for them, putting a plan in place that enables them to pursue their goals and then partnering with them to grow, protect and maintain that wealth.

His clients are at the heart of what he does. He wants to see them realise their vision, whatever that may be and derives satisfaction from knowing he has helped them along that journey.

Not being tied to a particular provider means Brad can ensure he delivers the best service and outcomes.

Personal

Brad has been married to Yvette, a social worker with the Hawke’s Bay District Health Board, for nearly 20 years. They have two children and are actively involved in their community.

Brad is keen on golf and cricket, playing for the Marewa Cricket Club in Napier. He served as Treasurer of the Raureka School Board of Trustees and is currently Secretary of the Napier Rotary Club.
