Meet the team.

We are only as strong as our weakest team member so we’re determined to only ever hire excellent people who truly care about delivering the best service for our clients. And once they’re in, we’re committed to nurturing talent and fostering a culture of team spirit, mutual support and, above all, fun.

Graham Taylor

Managing Director / Mortgage & Insurance Advisor / Superstar DJ

Graham started Hudson Rose in 2018 with the aim of creating a brokerage that not only reflects his personality but ultimately delivers the absolute best in customer experience. With over 14 years of experience arranging mortgages ranging from £25,000 to £6m+, Graham brings his own unique style to the industry (not least because of his signature hair-do that changes colour more often than Top Gear change their presenters). With a knack for making clients feel comfortable, taking time to explain all the options and translate the lingo, it’s no wonder that so much of our new business comes from personal recommendation.

When he’s not busy working, you’ll either find Graham renovating his 60’s home (using every colour imaginable), noodling on his guitar or watching professional wrestling with his family. He is overly keen on lego and an above-average DJ.

Guy Simmonds

Mortgage & Insurance Advisor / Charmer

Guy joined Hudson Rose in January 2021. He has already brought in a record number of new clients, all of whom appreciate his wealth of experience and down to earth style. Whether you’re a first time buyer, a buy-to-let landlord or a seasoned property mogul, you’re in safe hands with Guy.

When he’s not dishing out top-notch mortgage and insurance advice, you’ll find Guy doing up his own property or tinkering with an old 1970’s Ford Escort estate. He also enjoys secretly practising the tambourine in the hope of making it into the Hudson Rose band.

James Methven

James Methven

Mortgage & Insurance Advisor / Games Master

James has bucket loads of experience of working in the financial sector. Most recently, he’s been a financial coach, assisting people to structure their money in order to reach their savings targets and he is a qualified accountant to boot! Our clients are super lucky to have him around because, not only does he dole out tip-top mortgage & insurance advice, but he adds so much value along the way.

Away from the office, James is a big fan of Games Workshop and loves nothing more than an afternoon spent painting figurines or playing one of those complicated strategy boardgames that take hours to complete.

Jess Mitchell

Marketing & Operations Manager / Spreadsheet Lover

Jess joined Hudson Rose in February 2020. With a background in television and audiobook production, she brings with her a wealth of marketing knowledge and a talent for organising everything. She is epic at spreadsheets, manages our social media channels and keeps Graham’s ego in check (almost).

In her spare time Jess plays the ukulele and sings in a band called The Mother Folkers. She loves camping with her husband and two daughters and occasionally makes meringues in an attempt to impress her friends.

Rosie Fitzcharles

Rosie Fitzcharles

Administration Legend / Head of Plants

Rosie is here to drive your mortgage or insurance application through to completion. She’s a stickler for detail and will keep you updated every step of the way. Rosie is also in charge of our ever-growing jungle of office plants which she lovingly pots, re-pots and mists whenever she remembers.

Rosie’s main hobbies include drinking Bollinger, walking her dogs on Minchinhampton Common and sunning herself on the beaches of Salcombe. She makes a mean brownie and is proud to be able to move her eyebrows independently of one another.

Jules

Taxi / Style Wagon

Our most recent recruit, Jules is here to spread the Hudson Rose love around the wider Gloucestershire area. One of those crazy marketing ideas that has totally come good. She looks ace adorned in our brand colours and sporting a pink light on top.

What more could you want from a vehicle?! Oh and she’s very handy for ferrying the team to and from meetings (i.e. excuses for fun days out).

Jules loves a big event (especially if it’s for a good cause) so do invite her along to yours and don’t forget to give her a toot as you pass by!
