“At Livingbridge I get to work with businesses first hand as they manage their growth.”
I work across the new investment and portfolio teams at Livingbridge. Most of my time is spent speaking to interesting growing businesses, understanding what makes them tick and how Livingbridge might be able to help.
Since joining Livingbridge I have been lucky enough to work with a number of portfolio companies, including CREATE fertility, Upper Street Events and Efficio. Each of my involvements with these businesses was at a different stage in their Livingbridge journey; from making a brand new Livingbridge investment right the way through to businesses thinking through their strategic priorities after a number of years of working with us. The help that Livingbridge brings to each of those situations is very different, and completely dependent on what the business needs at that time, which keeps working here incredibly fresh and exciting.
Before Livingbridge I worked as a strategy consultant at the Parthenon Group. There I spent my time performing commercial diligence on investments across business services, consumer and education sectors, having previously completed a maths degree at Oxford.
Outside work I have normally signed up to a long race of some sort to prompt me to get out and do some exercise. Last year I completed a quadrathlon in the Highlands (swimming, running, kayaking and cycling) which took 13 hours; well behind the winners but great fun.
