I joined ECI’s Investment Team in 2018, having spent several years at KPMG corporate finance, including selling a business for ECI before I joined!
As part of the Investment Team my role is to find and invest in high quality, growing businesses and the talented management teams that lead them. I work closely with our management teams, supporting them throughout the investment cycle, from first coffee all the way through to exit.
Since joining ECI, I’ve worked with a number of exciting businesses including Arkessa, Auction Technology Group, Avantia, BCN Group, Moneypenny and Tusker. My experience covers a range of sectors, although most of my time has been spent in the technology sector and I have a special interest in online marketplaces and IoT.
I also sit on our ESG Committee, focusing on the continued development of our Inclusion and Diversity strategy.
“The people and the culture. When I was at KPMG, I sold a business for ECI and found the team to be low ego, straight forward and collaborative. That was a key factor in my joining and my experience since I started has matched that.”
“The pandemic has meant I haven’t been back to Bahrain, where I grew up, for over two years. I’m going to project forward and say my first plate of Arabic food sat at my parents’ dining table is going to be the best meal I’ve eaten.”
“My top 5 is largely made up of Haruki Murakami books, but Men Without Women is probably my favourite.”
