Margaret Mearns created Mearns & Company in December 1994, after many years of experience working as a Director and Financial Adviser working with one of Scotland’s largest independent financial advisory companies.
With over 40 years of experience in financial services, Margaret grew Mearns & Company from an original team of three people. Margaret is passionate about both client care and encouraging professional learning and development.
Margaret’s strong family values and passion for delivering excellent service to clients and developing our team have led Mearns & Company from strength to strength. With her leadership and mentoring so many of our people have gone on to develop their careers in financial services, with her support giving them a solid foundation and grounding in our sector, and with a dedicated focus on delighting clients.
We are so grateful to Margaret for creating the culture and values that we still hold so strongly to this day.
Margaret currently leads an Edinburgh based FinTech Lightbox Reward. Lightbox Reward delivers tailored employee benefits flexible benefits and communication software to employers.
In her time away from work Margaret loves to spend time with her family and especially delights in the company of her grandchildren. She is always happy in the company of her friends, too, sharing interests such as walking, dancing, music and stimulating conversation.
