Keith Carlson

Chief Operating Officer

I am a white British male and grew up largely in Nottinghamshire before heading to the University of Reading to study history. I returned briefly to Nottingham for two years at Law School. 

I started my first role in the financial services industry in 1999 and joined the Punter Southall Group in 2004. I have been COO of Punter Southall Aspire since 2016 and am currently chair of our Inclusion and Diversity committee. 

Outside of work, I enjoy running and I’m trying to enjoy gardening. I became a town councillor in 2021.
