I am delighted to be regional managing partner for the north-west, in my opinion, the powerhouse in UK economy. Overseeing our Manchester and Liverpool offices I am in a privileged position to work with entrepreneurs, funders and decision-makers who are responsible for delivering growth in the region but also to head up a fantastic team that helps these businesses reach their full potential.
My varied client portfolio sits across multiple sectors in both the UK and around the world. I am fortunate to be able to work with businesses who continue to seize the opportunity to expand, often into international territories, to achieve their growth ambitions. To support CEOs to do just this I have launched our north-west 'CEO room': a critical thinking space for business leaders to work on the key strategic, financial and leadership issues.
In addition to my role here, I am a co-opted member of the Audit Committee at Liverpool John Moores University. I am also a keen (but less than average) golfer, I enjoy managing my eight-year-old boy's football team and ensure I find time to travel with my family.
