Esther has had a successful career in Civil Engineering, graduating in 1991 and achieving chartered status in 1998. In addition to her engineering qualifications, Esther has also passed the Association of Project Managers Practitioners exam, and in 2014 gained Chartered Manager status from the Chartered Management Institute.
Esther brings a wealth of engineering knowledge and experience to our financial planning world. The synergy between the professions of engineering and financial planning is tangible, especially when looking at the requirements for compliance, procedures and quality production.
Holistic financial planning can involve complicated interaction between various planning issues. Ensuring that clear and timely written financial planning advice is delivered on a consistent basis is paramount.
Esther introduced Chapters Financial Limited to the British Standards benchmark for financial planning, having instigated similar procedures in her extensive career in civil engineering, mainly in transport infrastructure in and around London. It is part of her business ethic that high quality is both achievable, measurable and a standard that must be maintained as a matter of course, rather than a business aspiration.
Esther also has full control of our excellent website, www.chaptersfinancial.com. Updated regularly, this provides the opportunity for our clients to remain informed and updated on the latest topical issues, with links to our latest press comments and Keith Churchouse's regular blog and radio podcast updates. We attract many clients through our website and we believe that this is a testament to the quality of its easy to read format and regular updates.
Esther is also director of Elevate Guildford Limited (Experience Guildford), a Business Improvement District (BID) Company.
When Esther can drag herself away from work she enjoys swimming, scuba diving and holidays in the sun. She qualified as an Open Water Diver in 2005 (PADI) and Advanced Open Water Diver in 2006 (PADI) + BSAC Sports Diver in 2007.
