Investment Director

Current Investments

As an Investment Director in the team, the best part of my job is meeting, getting to know, and ultimately partnering with ambitious management teams and businesses to support them on their growth journeys. I am currently a Director on the Board of Flint Global and I look after our regional relationships in the South East, Thames Valley, and the South West.

I have over 13 years’ transactions experience as an advisor and an investor, the last eight of which I have spent in private equity. I am proud to be part of a great team at GCP, which is well-known for its excellent track record, partnership approach to investing, and being straightforward to deal with. No two days are the same in this career and I enjoy working across the whole deal lifecycle, from deal origination to execution, and most importantly, building long-term relationships with teams.

I am passionate about improving gender diversity in private equity at all levels, both within private equity firms themselves and businesses that are private equity backed and I am part of the Level 20 Outreach programme to encourage more women into the industry.  

I’m a bit of a foodie and outside of work I am often cooking, visiting new restaurants or browsing recipe books to decide what to eat next! To wind down and switch off, I head to group fitness classes at my local gym which bring out both my team spirit and competitive streak.
