Bob Wood CeMap Certs CII (MP&ER)

Head of Mortgages

Bob’s career in financial services began in 1974. He worked for Leeds Permanent Building Society and Leeds & Holbeck Building Society where he was a branch manager. In 1988 he left the building society world to set up and run Arncliffe Financial Services which provided financial services products to the housebuilder, Arncliffe Holdings PLC. In 1991 he joined Pearson Jones where he worked as Director for Mortgage Services, before joining Ellis Bates in 1996. He has vast experience in the house purchase process particularly in the new build field.

An avid sports fan, Bob follows the fortunes of Leeds United and England in most sports. Some say this is the reason for the early demise of the colour of his hair!
