My role is to make sure we know the best growing and resilient businesses there are, and that they know and want to work with us. Post-investment, my team and I provide hands on support to the businesses we back to develop their M&A strategies and unlock acquisition opportunities with them. I am also responsible for corporate finance relationships at ECI.
I’m a linguist by background, having gained a degree in Modern Languages from Oxford and then a research masters in French from Royal Holloway, University of London. I’m not sure I can say that my time spent studying Proust is directly applicable to my job today but at least the languages come in handy when looking at international deal flow!

My husband’s family has a connection to the place and it’s incredible to be able to walk all day across white sand beaches and rugged countryside, with penguins everywhere, a few wild horses and, of course, lots of sheep, yet not see a single sign of human life. It gives you a new perspective on the world.”

“We are low ego and every one of my colleagues looks to learn from everyone they come into contact with. We have a growth mindset, are future thinking and constantly look to improve what we do and how we do it.”
