Having worked as both an M&A advisor at PwC and as an Investment Director at LDC and the BGF, moving into CEO, COO and CFO roles in private equity backed businesses was a rewarding move. My role as CEO of Ocorian, an Inflexion backed fund administrator with 1,200 staff across 14 international offices, was great fun and played to my international experience, having lived and worked abroad for 10 years.
I now work closely with management teams as Chair of three private equity backed businesses; IDR Group (Perscitus); LearnPro Group (Apiary) and Republic M (Queen’s Park Equity).
PEPTalks is a great environment for CEOs to compare notes, share ideas and draw on the experiences of other CEOs as well as experienced Chairs who are part of the community. I’ve welcomed the chance to share what I have learned and helping where I can.
