Group CEO, Compre


I am the Group CEO at Compre, a specialty reinsurance business which provides capital and liability solutions giving certainty to clients on prior year underwriting. With over 30 years of experience in corporate finance, including roles at SG Hambros (Société Générale), PwC and then EY, I have spearheaded Compre’s growth journey since joining in 2010 as part of the initial MBO with Milestone Capital. I was responsible for the company’s acquisition strategy and new business generation, resulting in a successful secondary buy-out from Milestone to CBPE Capital in 2015. We continued our rapid growth trajectory and orchestrated the sale of the Group to Cinven and BCI (British Columbia Investment Management Corporation) in 2020.

I am passionate about sharing with fellow leaders the insights gleaned from my time as a private equity-backed Executive now on my third set of institutional investors, from small to large cap. I look forward to engaging with and learning from others in the industry.
