“Working in private equity is a genuine privilege, that allows me to work with some of the best entrepreneurs and management teams in the country to build market leading businesses”
The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting business owners and management teams hearing about their stories, how they got to where they are and then supporting them on the next phase of their journey – it brings huge satisfaction watching businesses evolve and grow into market leaders.
Since joining Livingbridge I have been involved in a number of investments, predominantly in Software and Technology Service Providers including Onyx, Eque2, M247, Kirona, Ten10, Giacom, Exclaimer, Mobysoft, Fluidone and Visualsoft. One standout investment I led was the creation of Ten10. This was created through the merger of Centre4 Testing with The Test People. The combined group developed into a world-class quality engineering consultancy developing some of the brightest young talent in the country.
I graduated from Nottingham Business School and hold an MBA from Manchester Business School. Prior to Livingbridge I started my career in banking at National Australia Bank’s corporate and structured finance team where I worked with a range of SME and mid-market corporate companies.
When I’m not working, I’m typically running around after my three children.
