Darren is the founding and equal partner of Enva and one of the principal advisers having over 17 years’ experience in commerce with 12 years in the financial services industry.
Born and bred in the UK, Darren emigrated to Australia with his family in 1983 and completed his schooling at Pembroke. After a one year ‘working holiday’ back in the UK, Darren returned 4 years later to complete his bachelor of Commerce at Adelaide University. Work followed in accounting, information technology and a segue into engineering, until the financial planning bug bit and Darren followed his dream of an easy life by becoming self-employed in the financial services industry in the post GFC era.
2009 saw the birth not only of Darren’s first child Skylar, but a fledgling business with big ambitions. Both have not been without their challenges. Darren is married to Larisa and has since added to his brood with a son Stellan, who is two. When Darren’s not plying his trade, he’s a keen follower of most sports but in particular motorsport, enjoys the odd glass of fine red and loves nothing more than a robust debate on the merits of the latest developments in quantum theory, even if most of it goes right over his head.
