I lead the UK technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) M&A team and have closed more than £1.5 billion of transactions over the past 10 years. My role involves giving clients strategic advice and helping them realise their ambitions through acquisition, sale of their business, IPO, or raising debt or equity capital. I’m always keen to speak with management teams with ambition!
My focus is on software and IT services, particularly subscription model and software-as-a-service transactions, and helping shareholders realise significant value through private equity and trade M&A transactions. Often I work with global corporations in the TMT sector – in fact, more than half of my transaction experience is cross-border.
I’m actively involved in Tech London advocates, www.techlondonadvocates.org.uk which helps technology startups and champions London as a world-class technology hub.
Outside work, I am married to Alison and have two teenage children, who keep me fully occupied. Sport is my other passion – both playing and as a spectator – and I have coached a youth football team for many years.
