Our People

Murray McEwan

I graduated from Glasgow University and for a while pursued my love of music, playing in a band and as a session guitarist. After that, following a short time in retail management, I trained as a financial planner. I’ve been  in financial planning for over 30 years and joined David to form Flowers McEwan in 2001.

I’m experienced in helping people understand their goals and showing them how they can organise their finances to get where they want to go. I get great satisfaction from being able to help clients to plan their futures, make good and informed financial decisions and from seeing the benefits for them that this brings.

In the past I completed a term as the Chair of the Yorkshire branch of the Institute of Financial Planning, served as a volunteer committee member for different charitees and have given training on ethical investment and philanthropy to my peers. In 2019 I was privileged to receive  the ‘Impact Champion’ award at the Social Investment Academy conference for my work as part of a team developing socially and environmentally impactful portfolios.

I am married to Helen with two grown-up children. I have been involved in the leadership at my local church over the years, and now serve predominantly on the musical side. I still indulge my life-long passion for music, writing songs and playing and recording music. I also enjoy reading, walking and photography.

Mark Wigginton

I’ve worked in financial services since 1998 in a number of different firms, mainly in compliance-related fields and as a Director of a previous firm. I also used to work for David before joining up with him and Murray in 2013 as Office Manager.

I bring a lot of experience and expertise in compliance and customer service, but I really enjoy making sure that the back-office of the business runs smoothly and that our clients enjoy an exceptional service.

I am married and have a son.  I enjoy nature, walking, cycling, and being involved in local community events.

Wendy Marks

After graduating from the University of Leeds in 1994 with a degree in Geography I spent several years working in a range of positions including research assistant and conveyancing roles for a large national bank.

I began my financial planning career in 1997 as a trainee Client Services Assistant. Following completion of my Financial Planning Certificate I moved to a Paraplanner role until 2010 when, seeking a new challenge, I moved to an office manager role within a surveying firm.

Returning to Financial Planning, I recently joined Flowers McEwan to work alongside and support the team in providing an excellent financial planning service to our clients.

I am married and live on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales. I am a keen runner and a member of my local running club. I enjoy competing in all distances from 5km to ultra marathons and can often be found running around the streets and fields of the Yorkshire Dales come rain or shine.

Client Services Administrator

After graduating from Leeds University and some years working in the home audio & installation sector across the north of England, I qualified & worked in Financial Advice for nearly 10 years, including being part of the original 3 person team at Flowers McEwan from 2001-2006, & another IFA firm thereafter. Apart from a short spell in the mid-2010s, I again worked remotely for Murray & David over many years, returning to the firm more formally in 2020.

I’ve also been an ordained Baptist minister and served in 2 churches over 11 years. In the rest of my time, I’m interested in music & concert-going – including doing live sound for the occasional gig – current affairs & reading, racquet sports & table tennis… but I’m often to be found simply running around after my family(!).
