I am currently Non-exec Chair of Love Energy Savings, a company enabling businesses to save on their utilities, and Evolution Funding Ltd, the leading motor finance and technology partner for the automotive industry. Both businesses are currently backed by LDC.
I have significant experience as a CEO within private equity backed technology and marketing businesses. In 2009, I successfully supported uSwitch through a MBO with LDC from Forward Internet Group 2013. Later in 2015, I led the sale of the business to ZPG plc for £190m, delivering a return of 3.2x and an IRR of 91% for LDC. I remained with the business post acquisiton and joined the ZPG leadership team, eventually growing uSwitch profits to £42m (from just £1m in 2009).
I add value to PepTalks members around sales and marketing growth strategies. I also enjoy sharing my experience of devolving responsibility down into an organisation and creating an environment where employees are empowered to make decisions.
