CFO, nShift


I have spent the last 15 years in CFO roles for private equity backed technology businesses based in the United Kingdom and the United States. I currently hold the role of CFO at nShift, a cloud delivery management solutions provider backed by Francisco Partners and Marlin Equity Partners.

I previously was CFO at Advanced Computer Software Group, a provider of market-focused software and services provider, which was initially acquired by Vista Equity Partners in 2015. We successfully scaled the business, hired nearly 1,000 additional staff and made 15 acquisitions under Vista’s ownership, which allowed us to secure investment from BC at £2bn enterprise value.

Before this, I was CFO at Kewill, a Francisco Partners-backed global provider of logistics transportation management software, where I led the acquisition of Hyderabad-based Four Soft, consolidating back-office operations for 13 countries.

I look forward to sharing my PE experience with PepTalks members, specifically newly PE-backed CFOs, and hope to advise on topics such as M&A and integration, reporting and forecasting, and creating an effective back-office infrastructure.
