As 2020 drew to a close, Hewison Private Wealth founder, John Hewison announced his retirement to fellow Directors. The announcement is the successful culmination of a multi-year succession plan that has seen John transition towards retirement over the past few years. Current Managing Director, Andrew Hewison sat down with John to reflect on what has been and what is to become.
John’s passion for the industry and the profession of financial planning is as intense as ever, however, the urge to continue with the day to day has passed. John will continue to guide and govern Hewison Private Wealth as Chairman of the Board.
Having founded Hewison Private Wealth in October 1985, John grew the business to become one of Australia’s leading independent financial planning businesses. This has been recognised by those within the industry, but most importantly by our clients and their continued referrals.
“A mark of his visionary business acumen is that the business plan written all those years ago is still just as relevant today,” said Chris Morcom. Chris feels privileged to call John a mentor and business partner. As does Nathan Lear, who is filled with gratitude for John’s guidance and mentorship over the course of his career.
Fellow Director & Private Client Adviser, Glenn Fairbairn, said “John has always wanted the best for the business and its people, he has established a solid foundation that will enable the business to continue to flourish into the future. His commitment to putting clients first and driving our industry to be regarded as a profession should not be understated.”
John Hewison’s legacy, within the industry and as Founder of Hewison Private Wealth, could not be stronger. As we head into 2021 and beyond, we will continue to reflect on the significance of John’s career.
We wish John a wonderful retirement; one filled with lots of time for his many passions and pursuits, especially time with his family and grandchildren.
