"One of the most rewarding elements of my job is working with a management team through difficult challenges and then seeing the business flourish when it comes through the other side."
I work with the management teams of the investment portfolio businesses to define, solidify and deliver a winning strategy. I am fortunate to work with lots of different businesses and enjoy getting to understand the different levers each can pull on to drive growth and profitability.
I started my career at BDO where I qualified as a Chartered Accountant in 2006, undertook secondments to RBS, BDO’s Hong Kong office, Business Recovery and then joined the Lead Advisory (M&A) team. Following this I joined TUI Travel PLC’s Specialist and Activity Sector, a portfolio of specialist travel businesses as M&A and Strategy manager in February 2011. I held various corporate development, financial & commercial roles culminating in me becoming part of the Executive team of Travelopia (the rebranded Specialist and Activity Sector) which was acquired by KKR in June 2017.
Outside of work I love being active and seeing the world, whether that’s skiing down a mountain, game-viewing on the African plains, playing golf, walking my 2 golden retrievers or learning Taekwondo. I’m also a huge sports fan and enjoy watching most sports but particularly enjoy seeing Saracens win at Allianz Park.
