I am responsible for leading deals from initial investment through to exit and taking a non-executive board seat at the businesses that we back. Since joining ECI in 2008, I have enjoyed working with and learning from high-calibre management teams including Moneypenny, BCN Group, MPM, Fourth and Clarke Energy.

I am also proud to be Chairman of ECI’s ESG Committee, and am responsible for considering the non-financial factors related to ECI’s investment activity.

I started my career with a crash course in the world of finance from Arthur Andersen and Deloitte, qualifying as a Chartered Accountant. Having really enjoyed meeting so many different businesses, I wanted to contribute to and ultimately share in their longer-term success, so when the opportunity arose to move into private equity, I didn’t hesitate.
