I work with Murgitroyd, our IP services portfolio business, where technology is used to supplement the strength of their attorney practice to offer a differentiated proposition to clients. I also work with the management team at AquaQ, the specialist data analytics and data science services business supporting global financial institutions, as they work to build a broader range of services and expand international reach.
Given my background, the Buy & Build strategy we deploy to support entrepreneurial management teams to realise their growth ambitions is particularly interesting.
Before joining Sovereign, I spent ten years as Corporate Development Director at Capita, the technology-enabled BPO business, supporting management teams to define and fulfil their strategic objectives often through making acquisitions. Prior to this I spent eight years working as a Corporate Finance Adviser initially with Dresdner Kleinwort Benson and latterly with Landsbanki where I focused on M&A for mid-market companies. I graduated from Durham University with a BA in Economics and whilst working for Capita I completed an MBA at Cranfield.
I am married with two energetic young daughters, so much of my spare time is spent keeping them amused! When time allows I also enjoy running, yoga and family holidays. I ran the 2021 London Marathon for the Brain & Spine Foundation and am contemplating where my running will next take me….
