My role at Sovereign on the investment team enables me to focus on my fascination for the TMT space.  Before joining Sovereign, I’d spent 10 years with First Capital, where I worked on a number of mid-market TMT transactions including ecommera, Salmon, MarketMarker4, Metronet and big Hand. Prior to this, I worked with Advent Venture Partners where I was in a finance and portfolio role covering high-growth technology investments. 

Since joining the team in 2016, what’s really struck me is the depth of energy that runs through the business. At every level the team is focused, pro-active and supportive of each other and of those we partner. We frequently work with business leaders who, on many occasions, have grown a company from its grass roots; this parity of energy and enthusiasm is one of the bedrocks for growing a successful business into a market leader. 

At every level the team is focused, pro-active and supportive, of each other and of those we partner.

I qualified as an accountant with KPMG and got my MBA from London Business School. 

I thoroughly enjoy tennis, cricket, travelling and food… not always in that order!
