I joined the Sovereign team in 2019 to focus on investment opportunities in the financial services sector. I arrived following five fantastic years of strategy consulting with Monitor Deloitte, where I worked across industries and disciplines but with a strong focus in innovation and growth hacking for financial services firms.

Having worked in a small family publishing business for many years, when the time came to sell the business in 2017 I was heavily involved in the sale process. During this time I was introduced to the dynamics of both trade and private equity bidders which I found fascinating. Having experienced the challenges and eventual joys of selling a family business from one side of the desk, joining Sovereign presented the perfect opportunity to continue that work from the other angle.

A long time ago I was a philosophy student and pursued that interest to a PhD from Durham. I have, in the past, been a keen surfer, racket sports player, and guitarist, but today I’m gladly sacrificing some devotion to those hobbies in favour of time spent with my wife and young son.
