Curtis said: “Having lived through the experience of being a professional footballer without the support of financial professionals around me, I’ve made it my mission to be that trusted partner for sports professionals dealing with the challenges of financial management in this modern era.”

Director David Dawson said: “We’re delighted that Curtis has agreed to join us as we’re looking to build on our offering to professional and amateur sportsmen and women and we were really impressed by the plans he’s looking to implement.”
