“I take a huge amount of satisfaction from playing a supporting role in building really impressive businesses that are winning in their market, and it’s a massive privilege to get to do this alongside some of the smartest and most inspiring business leaders in the UK.”

My job is to work alongside several of Livingbridge’s investee management teams to help them craft an ambitious growth strategy and then assemble the resources to execute it. Livingbridge is a seasoned enough investor to know that things never go quite to plan, but I can draw on the firm’s broad and deep experience and network to help managers anticipate and prepare as best as possible for the growing pains, challenges and opportunities every maturing business faces.

I’ve spent the last ten years working in various capacities with entrepreneurial fast-growing businesses, initially as a chartered accountant and corporate finance adviser at Ernst & Young, and latterly as a private equity investor. Before joining Livingbridge in 2012, I spent four years at Risk Capital Partners backing ambitious management teams to run promising businesses in a range of sectors.

When I'm not at work I love to explore a new city, learn about the history, people and culture, and sample the local food and drink.
