I am responsible for managing all our AIM and other quoted market investments at Livingbridge on behalf of our clients. I spend a significant amount of my time meeting with the management teams of existing and prospective investee companies.
I graduated from Oxford before qualifying as a Chartered Accountant with KPMG. I then moved into equity research with Commerzbank and then Evolution Securities where I built a sector expertise in telecoms and technology and knowledge of large and small listed companies and corporate transactions.
At Livingbridge I have been able to build upon a relationship with the management of Netcall, a provider of customer engagement software and services, which started in an advisory capacity when I worked at Evolution. A small company whose management I always held in high regard, I maintained contact when I joined Livingbridge and monitored the company’s progress. The relationship moved on when the company needed equity funding to make the strategic acquisition of Telephonetics during 2010. We acted as a cornerstone investor in the deal which together with further investments through the market enabled us to become the largest investor in the company and we are now very closely engaged with the board on strategic issues. We remain a committed shareholder and we are excited about the company’s prospects.
