My role is to find great businesses, run by talented people who are in need of an experienced and supportive investment partner for the next part of their journey. It’s the best job in the world as I get to meet many entrepreneurial businesses and the interesting teams that run them as I seek to find the next great Livingbridge investment. I also get to work with the teams that we have already invested in, to help them deliver on the potential of their exciting businesses.
I am an engineering graduate and unusually for someone in private equity, I worked in industry for ten years in general management roles with Rio Tinto and Electrocomponents. After a spell in Consulting with KPMG I moved into private equity in 2000, before joining Livingbridge in 2002. I joined Livingbridge to open up a new office in Manchester, looking to recruit a team and build a presence in the North – when we look back now we are delighted with what we have created and the success that we have been able to deliver.
