Having joined ECI in 2018, I have spent the past few years helping ECI flesh out our proprietary deal origination processes and I am responsible for building ECI’s long-term pipeline. To that end, I developed our AI opportunity sourcing and prioritisation tool, Amplifind™, which is helping to drive a more effective origination model.
The other half of my time is spent supporting our portfolio to develop and execute their M&A strategies, and I have worked closely with Peoplesafe, Mobysoft, Content+Cloud, and Ciphr to help them find and meet exciting new businesses.
