I am a Non-exec Director of Study Group, a leading specialist provider of international education which teaches 14,000 students from 140 countries. Between 2018 and 2022, I served as CEO, overseeing the tertiary buyout to Ardian in 2019. Prior to my role as CEO, I was CFO at Study Group for five years, when it was backed by Providence Equity Partners.
I was previously CFO of SHL Group for 11 years, taking it from being a public company to being private equity backed with Hg Capital until its successful exit in 2012.
I am particularly keen to share my experiences on:
- Transitioning from the CFO role to CEO
- Mergers with other PE firms
- Changes in market dynamics
