“I thrive on the fast-paced environment of private equity and helping management teams bring out the best in their businesses.”

I am responsible for deal origination, execution and portfolio management. I am based in London and work alongside Partners Mike Fell and Philip Duquenoy. Together we have delivered investments in Routes Healthcare, The Kite Factory, Sparta Global and CMOstores.

The most satisfying element of our job is supporting management teams on their growth journeys, including navigating through the many challenges that operating in a high growth environment brings. At KCP we work with our portfolio companies as a team, helping provide continuity and a broad range of experience to our investments.

I graduated from Cardiff University with a degree in International Business. Prior to joining Key Capital Partners in 2016 I spent eight years working in corporate finance and restructuring at FTI Consulting and previously Grant Thornton, where I qualified as a chartered accountant.

Away from work I enjoy all things sports related and spending time with my family.
