Investment team

“At Livingbridge I get to work with businesses first hand as they manage their growth.”

I’m in the new investment team at Livingbridge. Most of my time is spent meeting management teams, understanding their plans for the future, and whether Livingbridge might be able to help.

Since joining Livingbridge in 2014 I have worked on a range of new investments including Coversure, Helping Hands, Stowe Family Law and Efficio. My favourite investment to date has been working with the team at Portman Dental – over three and a half years the business has become the fastest growing private led dental business in the UK, making over 50 bolt on acquisitions over the period we have been investors. Getting the opportunity to meet and work with great entrepreneurs and management teams such as the team at Portman is an incredibly privileged position and a very good reason to get out of bed every morning!

Before Livingbridge I worked as a strategy consultant at the Parthenon Group. There I spent my time performing commercial diligence on investments across business services, consumer and education sectors, having previously completed a maths degree at Oxford.

Outside of work I try and keep fit and have probably signed up to an endurance race of some kind; having a target to aim for (in particular if a colleague is doing the same race) is the motivation I need to get out and do some training!
