            I am a Corporate Finance Partner based in London with 30 years in private equity and M&A transactions. My earlier career was spent with a mid-market private equity firm Gresham Trust where I picked up the tricks of the trade from an experience perspective. I have now been building my skills and experience at Grant Thornton for 17 years advising management teams on MBO's, raising growth capital and realising great value for shareholders on an exit.

            Over the years I have completed in excess of 100 transactions in a variety of industries but with an increasing sector focus on Business Services. One thing I have learnt is that every deal is different and this always presents an exciting challenge and opportunity!

            My interests outside work are mainly family and sport related. I like to keep active through the year with ski trips, golf weekends, and my latest goal of Triathlons where I recently completed my first Olympic distance. Endurance pays off in this game!
