Tom Smith

Investment team

“I love meeting entrepreneurs, hearing about the highs and lows as they follow their passion and understanding what drives them to grow and be better in the future. Being a part of their journey is incredibly rewarding.”

I am part of the new investment team at Livingbridge which means I spend my time identifying and meeting interesting new businesses, understanding what differentiates them and working out whether Livingbridge is the right partner to help with the next stage of their growth. 

After graduating from the University of Leeds with a degree in Economics, I joined the Corporate Finance Advisory team at Deloitte where I trained as a Chartered Accountant and helped advise on a range of M&A transactions across different sectors.

Outside of work I enjoy avoiding the gym but try and make up for it with a bit of running or cycling – I much prefer to be outdoors! I am a big Leicester City fan (never say never again…) and most Sunday’s you will find me glued to the TV watching Formula 1.
