Meet the team

Robert Whelan, Managing Director


I launched Rockwell Financial Management Ltd. because I wanted to do things differently. To do things better.

After having spent 12 years in Financial Services, beginning as a Financial Consultant and progressing through various Senior Management roles, I was finally in a position to be able to leverage this experience to deliver a range of services and most importantly a level of service which would achieve those aims.

I grew up in Carlow, graduated with a BComm from UCD, am a QFA and began my working life on the east coast of the United States. I'm married and we have 3 kids (Matthew, Harry & Zoe) who ensure that I never lose sight of what's really important in life.


Mark Solon, Director


I joined Rockwell Financial Management having spent the past 10 years working in Senior Management servicing members of both Public and Private Sector. Financial education has always been a priority for me. I have a BA (Hons) in International Business from University of Ulster; am a Qualified Financial Adviser (QFA) and Retirement Planning Adviser (RPA); and recently completed a 3 month diploma in Financial Trading in conjunction with Dublin Business School and The Irish Institute of Financial Trading.

Outside of work, I am a keen ‘amateur athlete’, always looking for the next big challenge. Although the arrival of our first child, Daniel, in June 2013 has certainly put a limit on the number of challenges I now consider!



Ian Heffernan, Senior Financial Adviser



I advise my clients on all aspects of their financial needs. From full financial reviews to tailored life, protection, pension or investment plans. As a broker I search the market to find the best policy to meet my clients needs, always working to best advice and best price. I help clients to plan for and achieve their financial goals.
