I joined ECI in 1998 having spent my early career in consulting with Gemini and Bain and Company, following a degree in Economics from Cambridge University. Between my consulting jobs I spent a thoroughly enjoyable 2 years completing an MBA from Harvard Business School. During my 20+ years at ECI I have had the privilege of working with many talented management teams across exciting growth businesses, including CSL, Arkessa, Edenhouse, Mobysoft, Content + Cloud, Tusker, Investis Digital, MThree, Wireless Logic, XLN, Clinisys, Harmoni, Bounty, ClarityBlue, Language Line, MM Group and WCI.
I am currently Chair of the Investment Committee and sit on the ECI Board, with responsibility for the Commercial Team.
“As soon as I was old enough to wheel a wheelbarrow, I spent many of my school holidays and sometimes weekends working as a builder’s labourer. I loved the physical exercise and working outdoors.”
“I was reasonably late starter to skiing, having not really taken it up in earnest until my 20s. Once I had caught the bug, it was always and still is the holiday I look forward to the most. I now have my son and daughter to compete with to make sure my ability doesn’t fade. Steeper descents and deeper powder – that catches them out! ”
“If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again – I have no idea who said this, but it has been a good reminder for me to never give up.”
