I am the Chief Operating Officer and Investment Partner responsible for investment activity in the North East and Yorkshire. I’m currently a director of Easby Group and YorkTest. I led the exit of Kitwave One which returned a 3.0 times money multiple for NVM and Direct Valeting which returned a 2.6 times money multiple.
I am very proud of It’s All Good and how it has developed during our investment period including the fact that it has created over 200 new jobs in the North East. The business has performed incredibly well since our first investment and I was delighted to announce a successful exit to Valeo Foods in December 2020.
I have a maths degree from Durham and am a qualified ACA chartered accountant.
Usually you will find me wearing a hard hat and high viz jacket at my renovation project on the weekends – a labour of love that will never finish.
I enjoy the privilege that comes with meeting and talking to the entrepreneurs of the region and helping their businesses to grow.”
