Investment Team


I joined Sovereign in 2016 and focus on searching for new investment opportunities as well as working with our portfolio companies to identify strategic follow-on acquisitions; this very much reflects our approach of Buy & Build.

Our success is a reflection of the relationships we have built. I love the fact that I get to meet really inspiring business owners and entrepreneurs and hear their stories – it’s something I never tire of.

In terms of sector specialisation, my focus is Support Services.  When we find an opportunity we look beyond the obvious to see what it could be, understand what it offers, challenge assumptions and spot where we can add value.  This means we evaluate opportunities differently, seeing the potential that others may miss.

I joined Sovereign in 2016 from Skillcapital, a specialist executive search and advisory business focused exclusively on the private capital industry. There I led pre-deal and post-deal projects for mid to large-cap private equity firms across the financial services and technology, media and telecoms spaces. Before that I worked in the Client Services team at Ingenious Media having graduated from Corpus Christi College, Oxford with a BA in English Literature & Language.

When not at work, you will find me chasing the sun or tracking down the best pizza in London.
