Colin joined Octopus in February 2014 after working in similar roles with MetLife and Zurich. His financial services career goes back to the late 80s where he worked as a mortgage adviser in London before moving North to work as a financial adviser with Halifax.
He took a break from his career in 1996 when he left Halifax to fulfil a desire to go to university where he completed a History degree. After graduating he returned to the industry.
A Londoner by birth, Colin has lived in the north of England for over 20 years now. He is married with three children (although the oldest is now 23). Despite being away from the capital for so long he remains a keen Arsenal supporter. Colin also enjoys cycling.
