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!
