Dave Corbett

Head Of Protection

I have worked in financial services since Uni in the mid-nineties, starting out as a call centre protection adviser with Eagle Star before moving into an advisory role with HSBC bank. Since then I have mainly focused on recruitment, working with Hays, Tenet Group and PRIMIS before helping The Money Group to grow their network from scratch. I also ran a protection only firm within TMG, gaining referrals from the network advisers who wished to refer. 

When I’m not in the office, you’ll find me walking Lizzie the labradoodle, showing off to my wife Felicity, making ridiculous videos for social media, ferrying my two lads to work, college or increasingly to parties, and keeping an eye on Bath Rugby or Coventry City.

George Gordon

Protection Adviser

I first started working life in Estate Agency back in 2013 for Redbrik. While at Redbrik I also bought, refurbished and sold two properties. I then took 18 months out of work to go and travel the world including Asia, Central America and South America. When I returned I started working in new build sales as the Sales Director for a local company called Woodall Homes. I was made redundant due to covid and found myself working as a protection advisor.

I have a dog (Labradoodle called Chilli). I play golf at Chesterfield Golf Club, go to the gym, go out walking lots, enjoy eating out and spending time with friends and family.

Torie Eley

Protection Adviser

I started in hospitality and worked with Lisa in wedding and events. 

I then had a stint in recruitment and then set our current gym up with my now husband. During the last 9 years I have also simultaneously run multiple operational projects across different sectors from gas to education to finance. 

If I’m not in the office I could be absolutely anywhere as I love being out….. either out with my son and husband, at the gym or at the bar!
