Partner Practice of
St. James's Place Wealth Management

Diana Thompson, Marketing and Administration

Like Hugh, I was an insurance broker in the Lloyd’s of London market. We worked for the same broker, which is where we met. I had a career break while the boys were young, taking huge pleasure watching them grow in to fine young men.

More recently, I spent four years as an account handler in the commercial lines division of a local insurance broker. When Hugh was approached by St. James's Place we saw an opportunity for me to help develop the business by taking a lead role in marketing and assisting with administration when needed.

I have been given great joy (and some scary moments!) watching our boys grow. I enjoy running, travel and being with friends.

Samantha Bullen, Administrator

I have been an administrator in the financial services industry for over 19 years. I was Hugh’s administrator while we were with a regional IFA firm. I joined Hugh a year after he set up his own firm.

I have four young children, including twins. They are sometimes hard work, and always full of energy. My partner and I have our hands full!

My partner and I used to deep sea dive, but since the twins arrived we now spend most of our time being PAs and a taxi service for the children. The joys of being parents to young children!
