Alex Thomson


I am a partner and a member of the investment team. I currently sit on the board of Hippo Digital, a digital and user centred design consultancy, and I represented us on the boards of Infinity Works, The DMW Group and Chaucer Consulting. I led our investment in Cooke Optics, a specialist manufacturer of cine lenses for the global film and television industries and most recently supported the investment in PPR advisory business, Flint Global.

Over the last seven years I have developed a particular track record in supporting businesses operating in digital transformation, technology services and consulting. Investing in talent and technology in a high growth environment is extremely exciting and can have transformational results.  

I have spent the last 15 years working with UK growth companies as an investor and advisor, the last ten years of which with GCP where I’ve had the privilege of working with some exceptional people and outstanding businesses over that time. Prior to GCP I worked in investment banking with Investec.  

Outside of GCP, I have a keen interest in history and politics, I am a board advisor to a family-run hospitality business, I have two small children who keep me busy and I also enjoy running.
