Julia A client since 2018


Chris stepped down as Managing Director on 1st May 2020, although he remains a Director and will very much be a part of the business.

Chris’s career in Financial Services started in 1977 and he launched Taylor & Taylor in July 1993. Our firm has been on Chorley New Road ever since.

As a Director, Chris will maintain his presence at Taylor & Taylor; attending client meetings, working on strategic planning with Ross and developing our relationships with our clients, staff and suppliers.


Chris has been married to Penny for 40 years. They have two sons, Richard and Ross. Chris has lived in Bolton all his life and went to Bolton School from 1965 to 1973.

He is a keen sportsman who stopped playing football in his early 40s and now plays golf at Bolton Golf Club. Chris is also a Bolton Wanderers season ticket holder and watches them play home and away, whenever possible.

Outside work, family life and his love of sports, Chris loves dining out, walking Rodney (Ross’ cockapoo puppy) and enjoying a pint with friends.
