Hello…

I am a Senior Manager in the Corporate Finance team with 20+ years’ experience as both an adviser and business owner.

 

What can I do for your organisation?

I am a reliable and professional deal leader with strong listening, analytical and project management skills. I work hard to deliver the optimum outcome for my clients

 

Experience counts

Starting life with a Big 4 firm, I began working in Corporate Finance in 1996 and have completed a range of transactions within the SME marketplace.  I have also spent 10 years as an equity partner in a firm of consulting engineers in a finance and business development capacity.

I have a joint honours degree in Economics and Business Economics from the University of Southampton and I am an FCA member of the ICAEW.

 

Deeper knowledge

My career has given me exposure to a wide range of businesses and industries as well as the financial and professional community across the Midlands. I have worked on transactions up to £40m in value acting on both buy-side and sell-side mandates. I also have direct experience of life as a business both before, during and after the last recession so can readily relate to the challenges our clients face.

 

Personally speaking

Outside of work I play tennis and go running and regularly take part in the Robin Hood Half Marathon.
