MEet Dan Hobbs – Head of Research and Development
I have lived in Bournemouth since I met my wife around 10 years ago and since then we have created a beautiful family of 6 (3 boys and 1 girl). I have been working in the Financial Sector for the same amount of time and have plied my trade across a variety of roles and built up a vast bank of knowledge around pretty much everything to make sure a business has the best opportunity for success. Two important things that I always remember in order to achieve success are:
- Your family are your rock – stayed anchored to them and this will provide you with security when the waters get rough ( as they normally do when you grow and become a thriving business)
- There is always work to be done – what you accomplish today will give you a head start on tomorrow
I love my job and I love the people I work with so as you can imagine, getting up every day is exciting. I have worked with the same team for around 7 years now so we know each other’s strengths and our weaknesses which isn’t something that money can buy.
I spend most of my day listening to music, flitting between trance right the way back to the 50’s and 60’s and then up to some AC/DC. I’m yet to hear any of Dan’s (our CEO) original content, but judging by his eclectic taste in music, I imagine we could be in for some Rick Astley mixed with some Ne’Yo.
I’ve included a picture of our family Dog Lola who has by far the weirdest mix of genealogy by being originally from France, bred in Wales and relocated to sunny Bournemouth.
