I joined Sovereign as an Investment Manager in late 2021, drawn to the firm’s exceptional track record of supporting high quality businesses to deliver transformational growth through a strategy of Buy & Build.

Being part of the Sovereign team gives me a great opportunity to work with talented entrepreneurs and management teams and to leverage Sovereign’s capabilities in helping businesses to develop, scale and become the market leaders of tomorrow.

I am particularly interested in high-quality, resilient business models at the convergence of services and technology and at Sovereign I focus on Software and IT Services and Data companies in the UK and Europe. Sovereign is highly active in the Business & Technology Services space so it’s a great fit for me.

Before Sovereign I was at Ondra Partners, a boutique corporate finance advisory firm, advising large, listed companies on high-profile M&A and broader capital markets situations, covering all sectors from Technology and Industrials to Big Pharma and Biotech. Prior to this I was in Deloitte’s M&A advisory team, where I qualified as a Chartered Accountant, having started my career in the Private Equity Fundraising team at UBS Wealth Management.

I am particularly interested in high-quality, resilient business models at the convergence of Business & Technology Services. Sovereign is highly active in the business & technology services space, as reflected in the portfolio - it’s a great fit for me.

Outside of the office, I often find myself at the home office…however, I also enjoy regular trips to the gym, am a keen snowboarder and like travelling and exploring new cultures!
