Investment team

“Working at Livingbridge, I am fortunate to do what I enjoy, which is meeting really interesting and talented people and businesses every day.”

Part of my role is to source new opportunities through building relationships, but I also get to work with the companies I’ve led investments in as a board member, allowing me to contribute to the long-term journey. I work in Manchester but also lead our TMT team nationally. 

There have been many highlights, but one that stands out is probably Scriptswitch, which saw a significant increase in profit during our investment. We made a great return for the team and Livingbridge.

Although I graduated in English Literature….it didn’t qualify me for a proper job, so I trained as an accountant with Andersen.  After spells with Deloitte and Rothschild I have now been with Livingbridge for over 10 years.

I am a fitness fanatic and love nothing better than getting out on my road bike.
