"I feel very fortunate to meet so many great and entrepreneurial management teams. Hearing their story first hand and understanding what drives them is key to making great Livingbridge investments."
As a member of the new investment team I meet with a lot of high performing companies. It's great to hear how they have grown and work out how Livingbridge can partner with them to achieve even more. I also commit part of my time supporting our existing investments to maximise their growth and realise their potential.
After reading Medicine at university I spent two years working on the frontline in the NHS. Despite hugely enjoying my time as a doctor, I moved on to work as a Strategy Consultant and gained experience at Strategy& (part of the PwC Network) and McKinsey. During this time, I provided corporate strategy, operational improvement and commercial due diligence support to a broad range of private equity, corporate and public sectors clients. After a while the pull of the investment side got the better of me and, following a period spent as a manager in PwC's Corporate Finance team, I moved to Livingbridge.
After a varied early career, private equity feels like a natural home; a place where I can draw on all my past experiences to deliver the best that I can for the companies I work with.
When not at work, I like to unwind by playing sport (you’ll likely find me on the squash court or golf course) and getting out to the countryside for walks with the dog. I'm also (slowly...) progressing through my day skipper sailing qualifications.
