I was formerly CEO of Partnership Assurance Group, a provider of nonstandard annuities for individuals with medical or lifestyle conditions. I undertook a management buyout of the business with Phoenix Equity Partners in 2005, at an EV of £14m. Just three years later I led a secondary buyout to Cinven, valuing the business at £160m, before listing the business in 2013 at a £1.6bn market cap.
Formerly I served as Non-executive Director of Guardian Financial Services and Saunderson House, achieving stellar exits for Cinven and Epiris, respectively.
