Hi, I’m Simon Lovell. I’ve been with TMA since April 2015 as a Field Compliance Manager and can say it’s been (and continues to be!) a pleasure to work with such wonderful colleagues. TMA are clearly focused on supporting Directly Authorised professional intermediaries and I am glad to be part of that function.
Prior to TMA I have been with the Woolwich and held several roles within the Pink Network, including Compliance Policy Officer and more recently as an Area Compliance Manager where I spent about eight years helping Appointed Representatives firms develop their businesses and remain compliant at the same time.
This experience has given me a great foundation to now support, protect and develop Directly Authorised firms which is a refreshing but positive change! One thing I’ve certainly noticed, is that TMA are all about sharing knowledge so if you want to know what’s going on out there in the regulatory world, stick with us!
From a personal point of view, I am married with two boys, James and Daniel, who both play tennis and are members of local football clubs. As some of you with children will know, this is time consuming in itself but when I get free time, I follow Wolverhampton Wanders FC, play golf off a handicap of 13 and also love to ride my mountain bike over Cannock Chase as much as possible.
