Meet the Team

Stephen Alger
Business Principal

I’ve worked in the financial services industry since leaving university in 2004. I joined Mortgage Advice Bureau in 2008 and became business principle in 2009. Since then, I’ve enjoyed growing our mortgage team from a small local service with a team of three covering one office, to today’s much larger team spread throughout East Anglia. But we’ve still kept the same friendly ethos, making sure our customers get the best possible experience. The best part of my job? It’s a great feeling when you know you’ve helped someone save money, or you help them realise they can afford their dream home.

 

I enjoy music, reading, food, cinema and a trip to a good pub with friends and family. I’m also a keen sportsman and enjoy playing lots of sport in my spare time, such as football, tennis, golf, squash and cricket (albeit pretty badly these days). I also enjoy cycling and run regularly. I’ve completed the London Marathon four times and have raised over £20,000 for charity.

Stephen Robinson
Mortgage & Protection Adviser (Great Yarmouth)

I joined the team in June 2014, having been in a similar role for the previous 10 years. I offer expert mortgage and protection advice on buying or moving home, remortgaging, investing in a buy-to let property, as well as specialist areas such as offset mortgages and Help to Buy schemes. I’m actually a landlord myself and am passionate about property investment.

Born in Great Yarmouth and married with two teenage boys, I’m a keen squash player and enjoy other activities such as golf, swimming and going on holidays.

Jackie Bowles
Mortgage & Protection Adviser (Lowestoft & Gorleston)

I’ve been in financial services for nearly 20 years and have worked as a mortgage adviser for over 10 years, seven of which I’ve been at Mortgage Advice Bureau. My role here is to give advice on mortgages and protection, whether you’re a first time buyer, a home mover or just looking to remortgage your current property. The best part of my job? I love helping people and getting to know them.

I’ve lived in Lowestoft for the majority of my life, so know the area well. I love to go abroad at least once a year, usually somewhere hot and sunny. In my spare time I enjoy eating out at nice restaurants and socialising with friends and family. I also regularly attend the gym with my husband, Mark.

Nicky Zouvanni
Mortgage & Protection Adviser (Stalham)

I’ve worked in the financial services for over 15 years, and joined Mortgage Advice Bureau in March 2017, specialising in mortgage and protection advising.

I enjoy a challenge and like to help people, whether they’re buying a new home or remortgaging. I live with my husband and two young children. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, going for meals out, and trips to the cinema.

Lucy Hodds
Administrator

I joined Mortgage Advice Bureau as an apprentice in November 2018. I started by taking on the role of an apprentice administrator, completing my college work alongside general admin duties. I’m now a senior administrator and work in the Great Yarmouth office alongside the other admin, where I’ve learnt and progressed in my role. I’d love to progress further within the company, and hopefully become a mortgage adviser myself one day.

I was born and raised in Great Yarmouth, and therefore know the local area really well. I like socialising with people on a day-to-day basis and am always happy to help!

Megan Harsley
Lead Manager

I joined Mortgage Advice Bureau in November 2017. It was a brand new role, not only for me but for the company as well. I work closely with all the mortgage advisers and introducers to ensure all our customers are contacted as soon as possible. I also book appointments for clients with all different circumstances; from first time buyers to remortgaging. I’d like to progress within the company and hopefully become a mortgage adviser in the future. I was born and raised in Great Yarmouth so know the town very well.

The best part of my job? I enjoy helping others and making people smile.

If you want to book an appointment or speak to an adviser, I’ll help the process go as smoothly as possible.

Tyler Dobner
Administrator

I joined Mortgage Advice Bureau from Great Yarmouth College in 2015. I started as an apprentice and went on to win the ‘Apprentice of the Year’ award in 2016. I work in the busy Great Yarmouth office where I’ve learnt and memorised all aspects of my job role.

Born and raised in Great Yarmouth, I aspire to become a mortgage adviser myself one day. I’m very interested in properties and would love to make an appearance on Grand Designs when I eventually win big on the lottery! My life ambition is to move to Canada where I’ll continue my work in the mortgage industry, open a Mortgage Advice Bureau branch there, and make everyone back home proud!
