Mr Bob Woods

Bob has over 35 years' experience in pension consultancy and wealth management. After a successful career with a market leader in the field of self-administered pension schemes, Bob cofounded Mattioli Woods with Ian Mattioli in 1991. Strong growth led to a listing on AIM in 2005, at which point Bob became the Group’s Executive Chairman and subsequently Chair of the Group's Investment Committee. Bob stepped down as Executive Chairman at the Group’s AGM on October 25 2016, but continues to provide strategic input in a full-time, executive role as Senior Adviser to the Group.

Bob has been key to the development of Mattioli Woods' strategy and investment ethos. His personal achievements include winning the London Stock Exchange AIM Entrepreneur of the Year award jointly with Ian Mattioli; and a Lifetime Achievement Award co-sponsored by the Leicester Mercury and the University of Leicester. Bob was awarded an MBE in the 2017 New Year’s honours lists.
