Alan JohnstonThe Boss

Alan has had 25 years’ experience having been in Financial Services since 1991, and opened City Gate Aberdeen Ltd in 2002. He is committed to ensuring that he continues to offer the highest service to his clients, gaining the status of Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning (APFS), Certificate in Advanced Mortgage Advice and is a member of the Society of Mortgage Professionals (Cert SMP), gaining the qualification of Chartered Financial Planner in 2016 and enrolled as a Fellow of the Personal Finance Society, not forgetting to mention that he is also an Independent Financial Adviser.

Alan offers a full financial planning service from mortgage, investments, pension to equity release and has clients from London to Inverness, although his client base is mainly in Aberdeenshire. He also has a large following of Polish clients who have made their homes in the North East.

He has won the following awards through the TenetConnect network:

  • Newcomer of the Year 2013
  • Top Mortgage Registered Individual North 2014
  • Firm of the year 2015 (1-3 Advisers)
  • Top Mortgage Adviser North 2015
  • Winner of TenetConnect Firm of the Year 2016 (1-3 Advisers)

He is married with two daughters (although he does not see enough of them due to his long working hours). He is a shareholder of Aberdeen Football Club and is still playing amateur football..........just!
His mantra is ‘work hard, play hard’ and enjoys the odd cruise when he has the time.

Alison FindlayBusiness Administrator

Alison has 18 years experience in General Insurance Services. She joined the Team in May 2015 and is experiencing a 'crash course' in Financial Planning Administration. She hopes to have her skills honed in this area by May 2033!

Karina WysockaData Administrator

Karina joined the Team in 2014 and as the name suggests is from Poland, although she considers Scotland to be her home. In Poland she worked as a Company Solicitor's Assistant for over 7 years.

She loves her job as Administrator at City Gate and is a great asset as we have a huge number of Polish clients who appreciate hearing their native tongue (and assistance when translation becomes difficult). She considers herself open minded and always ready for new challenges.

Out of hours she is an active person, however values family time at home, surrounded by her 3 cats, watching Crime Investigation films.
