Over this time, I have worked across a number of sectors namely business services, technology, healthcare and industrials and have experience in closing deals across the UK, Europe and US.
I first came across Sovereign during my time at KPMG when I sold a veterinary business to Sovereign backed Linnaeus Group in 2017, which subsequently became one of the most successful UK mid-market PE exits.
I was impressed by Sovereign's ability to identify niche sectors and work with management teams to deliver successful outcomes for all stakeholders.
At Sovereign I have been particularly interested in tech-enabled business services and software businesses. Gone are the days of technology being a sector in its own right; instead technology is increasingly an enabler for all sectors, driving digitalisation of functions, processes and activities. This trend has become more apparent during the pandemic and is set to continue - at pace. Technology is no longer a 'nice to have', it is increasingly mission critical for businesses that want to remain competitive in an evolving landscape. Our recent investment in Zenitech, near shore digital transformation and software development provider, is a testament to that.
From a personal perspective, I enjoy skiing and scuba-diving and spend a lot of my free time in the gym (I am a fan of Barry’s bootcamp) and eating out with my husband. I must say I much prefer the later to the former..
