PA:

I joined Sovereign in 2014 after spending four years with Experian plc where I was Corporate Development Director, covering M&A activity in the UK and EMEA.  Whilst there I worked on a broad range of transactions, with a focus on software, data, and analytics businesses. 

Prior to this I qualified as a chartered accountant with KPMG, working in Transaction Services where I focused on the business services, healthcare and real estate sectors. 

As an Investment Director at Sovereign, one of the things I really enjoy about being part of the team here is the range of businesses I get the opportunity to work with.  We really put in the time and energy to get to know the businesses in our areas of sector focus and build relationships with business owners and management teams. This has led to many strong investment partnerships where we work together to deliver the growth strategy that’s right for the business.

One of the portfolio companies that really stands out for me is Options Group (part of Outcomes First).  We have been able to apply our breadth and depth of expertise in the healthcare sector to leverage the company’s exceptional approach to quality and help this already fantastic business flourish.  

Before joining KPMG I graduated from the University of Southampton with a first class BSc in Accounting and Finance. I am married with two young daughters, and when not doing my best to keep them entertained I enjoy travelling, skiing and watching Formula 1. I am also a keen musician and distinctly average golfer.
