“I love working with passionate and enthusiastic management teams to support them in all aspects of their businesses. We invest in a wide range of dynamic and ambitious SMEs which ensures no day is ever the same!”

I joined KCP as an Investment Manager in May 2022, working alongside James Hall and Matt Tice in the Leeds office. In my role, I assist with the management of portfolio companies as well as originating, evaluating and executing new investments.

What really attracted me to KCP was an entrepreneurial culture that is embedded throughout both the team and the portfolio. The team recognise that growing value is not just about maximising profits, we are focused on supporting and assisting management teams to achieve their strategic goals, creating jobs for the wider community and establishing long lasting relationships.

Prior to KCP, I trained as a Chartered Accountant at Deloitte where I joined as a graduate in audit before moving into the Debt and Capital Advisory team within Corporate Finance. In this role, I advised a wide range of privately owned, PE backed and corporate clients on raising finance with a focus on the Yorkshire, North-East and Manchester markets.

Outside of work I play netball in a local league, enjoy walking in the countryside and recently started salsa dancing lessons. Food is a big part of my life, I love visiting new restaurants with friends/family and experimenting with different recipes over a glass of wine. I also love to travel and enjoy exploring new countries when I can.
