Matt started his career as an independent adviser in May 2001 with what was then Towry Law, rising to become one of only four Executive Partners nationally. Following the acquisition of Towry by Private Equity house Permira in 2016, Matt left to establish Altor believing that there was a fairer way of advising his clients.
Matt spends most of his free time with his lovely family and with what is left, is a keen supporter of the England rugby team.
Lucinda is an equity partner at Altor and is responsible for the running of the business. Lucinda comes from a teaching background and has taught in state and private education. Her day to day role as practice manager ensures that the crucial functions of the partnership are fulfilled allowing Matt, Jon and Vaughan to focus full-time on our clients.
In her spare time Lucinda enjoys distance running and is an active member of the community.
Vaughan started his career as a financial adviser in 1999, joining Towry Law in 2007 where he became one of only a dozen Senior Client Partners. Following Tilney’s acquisition of Towry in 2016, Vaughan was promoted to Managing Partner of the South-East. Cultural and philosophical changes meant the time had come to look for a firm aligned with his own values. Vaughan joined Altor as a Partner in April 2019.
Vaughan enjoys spending time with his large extended family, American Football, playing golf, running and has also embraced Veganism since 2020.
Jon started his career in 1988 running his own IFA business before selling it to John Scott & Partners in 2006. The firm became Towry shortly afterwards and he was appointed Senior Client Partner until his retirement in 2015. Jon has come out of retirement to join Altor believing that our innovative charging model and independence is just what his clients are looking for.
In his spare time Jon plays golf and is currently trying to fight his handicap back down as his clients are keeping him busy.
