I joined the Sovereign investment team to focus on identifying and building opportunities across the healthcare, pharmaceutical and IT service sectors. My prior experience at Accenture focused on multi-faceted strategic work across number of regulated industries.

I was inspired by Sovereign's distinctive strategy for growing companies through Buy & Build, their drive to understand each business they engage with and their ability to establish meaningful relationships.

In 2019, I took two months leave from Accenture’s Technology Strategy practice, to conduct my own exploration of growing technology businesses. As part of this I attended start-up conferences across Europe and completed a course at London Business School for ‘Financing the Entrepreneurial Business’ to build upon my BA Economics degree from the University of Exeter. It was through these experiences that I got to know Sovereign; I was inspired by their distinctive strategy for growing companies through Buy & Build, their drive to understand each business they engage with, and their ability to establish meaningful relationships.

Arriving at Sovereign during the height of the first UK lockdown, I’ve witnessed the pandemic’s impact on service delivery across sectors and the rapid adoption of technology to mitigate risk. This has improved opportunities for growth and established a new definition of market-leading operational excellence in the service sectors which we, at Sovereign, are keen to help businesses capitalise on.

Most weekends, I can be found at the nearest clay shooting range. I regularly train in the discipline of Olympic Skeet in which I have represented England. However, my aspirations to achieve in this sport are much bigger than that!
