While the technical side of his job is extremely important, Chris especially enjoys working with his clients personally to find solutions to financial problems that have often caused concern for months or years.
“Helping someone to improve their circumstances by using my up-to-date knowledge of debt solution choices in Scotland is a particularly rewarding part of my role. My previous role as a Welfare Officer has helped to equip me with an empathy that helps to set clients at ease when discussing what I acknowledge can often be a sensitive and worrying subject”.
As a manager within Wylie & Bisset, Chris is also well-positioned to maintain a connection to a case right through to the point at which the client completes the process is discharged.
“I work with clients not just to find out how they can enter a debt solution, but also to plot a course for them to complete it as well. It’s always satisfying, professionally and personally, to see a client that I first met sometime in the past reach the point at which their debt solution has been completed”.
Chris married in the early 1990’s and moved to Scotland in 1996 whilst serving in the Royal Navy. He retired from the Navy in December 2001 having completed 22 years of active service.
Outside of his professional responsibilities Chris has done much work for his local Citizens Advice Bureau (including serving as Volunteer Director and Treasurer), and is a member of the Glasgow Fundraising Committee for MacMillan Nurses.
Chris also tells us that he is a keen, but useless, cricketer. His wicket keeping performances have earned him the nickname “Jacko” amongst his teammates. Apparently both are thought to wear gloves for no reason!
