Finance Board Advisor, Nexus Vehicle Rental


I recently stepped down as CFO of Nexus Vehicle Rental, the UK’s leading supplier of corporate rental vehicles. During my tenure, we took the business through three rounds of private equity investment with Livingbridge, Bowmark and then Phoenix Equity Partners. Following a successful quaternary buyout to Equistone in 2023, I exited the business, but continue to act as a financial advisor to the Board.

Before joining Nexus, I was Managing Director at Ventura, an outsourcing and offshoring provider, that was a division of Next plc, before being sold to Capita for £65m.

I’m looking forward to helping PepTalks members who are professionalising and scaling tech-driven, entrepreneurial businesses and hope to support them in preparing for, delivering maximum value and reducing the risks surrounding the exit process.
