I joined EV as a Partner in 2006. Now, as Senior Partner, and head of EV’s UK office, my responsibilities range from overall strategic guidance and direction of UK staff, assessment of new investment opportunities, input towards stewardship and exit activity, through to active hands on involvement across our portfolio. Within the EV partnership model I have been fortunate to work alongside many fantastic teams, both leading and exiting investments.
I am a highly networked and energised self-starter with a strong team and work ethic, which fits perfectly within EV’s philosophy and culture. My driving passion is around the intersection of the planet, people, technology and business.
EV’s experience in growing technology led investments means we are uniquely positioned to help companies and entrepreneurs deliver higher quality, high growth businesses against a robust ESG agenda, which has a positive impact on society, while delivering superior returns to shareholders.
Prior to joining EV, I gained eight years of experience in mergers and acquisitions in the energy sector, most latterly with Simmons & Company International (currently Piper Sandler). Prior to this, I gained 10 years energy industry experience working for a variety of technology equipment and service companies, including leading the sale of my family-owned downhole technology business.
My exit experience includes: Enpro Subsea, Halfwave ILI, Halfwave Subsea, Read Cased Hole, Meta Downhole, Red Spider, Intelligent Well Completions, Clerk Maxwell, Caltec, amongst other.
Board Member: Enhanced Well Technology, Motive Offshore, Cereus Downhole Tools, Romar and Deep Casing Tools.
Education: Bachelor of Engineering Technology from Robert Gordon’s University.
