Ephraim - Adviser
Prior to joining Aspire financial services Ephraim had spent over 15 years in various consultative roles. Providing guidance, often in very specialist or complex areas is something he has found very rewarding over the years.
He is a seasoned professional who understands first-hand the importance of quality advice. His technical and consultative experience ensures he is well placed to help with the intricacies of your specific challenge ensuring you achieve your desired outcome.
Starting out his professional career as a mechanical engineer before moving into the world of IT and Software then into finance following a move to Taunton in 2017.
He is a keen motorcyclist and holder of the ‘IAMRoadsmart’ advanced rider qualification. Something he would recommend to anyone who rides as it delivers a new perspective, enhanced awareness and skills on the road.

Kenton – Partner/Adviser
With 20 years’ experience in the Financial Services industry Kenton has learnt that the best way to help someone is to listen, ask questions and understand before giving advice. At Aspire, we believe everyone should have access to the best advice and support when buying a property, whether it be a home, a Buy-to-Let or a commercial property. This is the guiding principle by which Kenton deals with clients.
Kenton started his Financial Services journey in Wills and Estate Planning after family members experienced poor advice resulting in financial loss; even impacting on future generations. He knew there had to be a better way to help people through the process of financial advice by educating them in their options when it comes to planning and taking action with their finances. As the co-founder and partner with Richard Tadman of the Congleton branch of Aspire Financial Services, every enquiry is treated with equal importance to get to the heart of what our client aspires to do, whether it be a straight forward or complex case.
Outside of the business side of things and when not helping clients, Kenton enjoys spending time with his wife, two children and five grandchildren. You may find him cycling along the Tarka Trail rain or shine. He is also involved in local and national Christian Church activities through public speaking and ministry.
Richard – Partner/Adviser
Prior to co-founding Aspire with Kenton, Richard worked for over 25 years in the corporate blue-chip environment.
Richard lives with his wife Lindis in Congleton in Cheshire. When not helping his clients with mortgages Richard can be found running, cycling or musically directing shows in the local theatre.
Richard’s strength lies in his ability to educate and inform, making complex things simple, helping people to understand how to plan their property investments wisely, and then how to protect them.
He is easy going yet thorough, and very responsive to all queries throughout the case from start to finish, keeping you informed and up to date. If asked, he will also swap curry recipes with you – a very worthwhile exercise where he is concerned.
