Our Advice Team

Our Advice team is the heart of the Practice.  They are very client focussed, providing financial advice and support. Our team comprises of highly skilled financial planners, a mortgage specialist and a support team all dedicated to helping our clients plan for the important moments in their lives.

Drew Johnston is a senior financial planner and has over 15 years’ experience. Drew is dedicated to ensuring his clients know where they’re positioned on their financial timeline and helping them to understand what they need to do to achieve their goals. He’s easy going and knowledgeable, just how we like it.

Mark Flavell is a senior financial planner and has been practicing his trade for over 26 years in a beautiful bayside area of Melbourne. A long career in the financial services industry has brought a depth and breadth of knowledge in financial planning. Mark has translated this experience into a strong understanding of how a client’s position can shift over time and the benefit of an appropriate financial plan can have when planning for life’s important moments.

Mark is a keen lover of all things sports and is as passionate about the Bayside Financial Group family of staff and clients as he is about his mighty Essendon Bombers! He is also committed to a life of health and fitness, within reason of course, and to travelling and experiencing the wider world.

David Hutchings is a senior financial planner who, although retired from active duty, manages our client review process. If you haven’t yet spoken with David there is no doubt that you will share a conversation at some stage in the near future. He is a valued member of our team, regaling us with great insights and stories from his glory days, and the knowledge and wisdom that only life experience can bring.
