“One of the most rewarding parts of my role is getting to understand businesses and their drivers through spending time with the individuals who have established them and/or run them now.”
As a member of the value strategy team, I work closely alongside the management teams of companies within the Livingbridge portfolio – in order to help develop, execute and monitor strategies that can maximise the potential of a business. We have a fascinating and varied job, which means that every day provides new challenges. With this understanding, and in conjunction with an appreciation of the business culture within a particular business, Livingbridge can be aligned to build better businesses. This can range from setting and monitoring strategy, identifying organic and inorganic growth opportunities, executing refinancing and managing exit processes.
I started my career in investment banking at Merrill Lynch. Prior to Livingbridge, I had eleven years’ of experience working in private equity at 3i and Permira. I was then at Barclay’s Ventures, where I worked on executing debt-for-equity restructuring and helped businesses develop and execute strategies to improve their commercial and financial performance.
I enjoy spending time with my family watching all sport, especially Liverpool Football Club, as well as playing golf when time allows.
