Investment team

“It’s fantastic to work with such a diverse range of businesses each with their own story, challenges and opportunities.”

As part of the new investment team I get to meet passionate entrepreneurs and management teams that have a vision for their business, look at where Livingbridge can really add value and help them to achieve their potential.

I graduated from the University of Manchester with a master’s degree in chemical engineering and started my career at PwC, where I trained to be an accountant. After qualifying I moved to the Deals Strategy team within PwC, focusing on commercial due diligence and strategy projects for private equity clients, predominantly in the TMT sector.

I love visiting places off the beaten path, preferably with some good diving spots, and I aim to add a few new countries to my list each year. In my spare time you can find me in the gym, enjoying the sights of London or attempting, and usually failing, to recreate a dish I have seen on Masterchef.
