I am responsible for ECI’s investors across our current buyout funds, and prospective institutional investors for the future. I enjoy building these long-term relationships and being able to tell the stories about the great businesses we’ve backed.
I have helped to lead the past three ECI fundraisings since 2008, raising over £1.8bn of commitments including several co-investments.
I am part of the BVCA’s Performance Measurement Survey Review Board and Investor Relations Advisory Group having previously Chaired the BVCA’s Responsible Investment Advisory Group. I sit on the ECI ESG Committee and am passionate about ESG and ensuring it is at the forefront of the private equity industry. I spend a lot of time thinking about how we can promote initiatives both internally at ECI and in the wider market.

“I am one of those MAMIL’s who gets excited about bikes and cycling up hills. In recent years it would have to be cycling on the South Downs and Ashdown Forest (or further afield when possible).”
