I have spent the bulk of my career in the technology sector working initially for a couple of large IT systems manufacturers and latterly focussing on software and services. Having exited a software consultancy business in 1999 that I co-founded, I have indulged myself in the horse racing and breeding industry and continued to look for innovative tech businesses to work with and, on occasions, invest in as an angel. These days, as a Funding Nav Partner, I am mainly focussed on helping early stage and growth businesses improve their respective cash positions. When I’m not working, I enjoy cycling and walking.

It is this variety of experience that enables me to relate to most Business Owners situations, whatever size, and indeed I pride myself in identifying the ‘need’ that entrepreneurs look for in realising their ambitions.

Outside of work I enjoy travel, current affairs, and Chelsea F.C. And a glass of red.

Bio: With close to two decades of experience within the financial advisory sector, I bring a rich tapestry of expertise to Funding Nav. Throughout my career, I've served as a trusted advisor, offering bespoke and holistic financial guidance to a diverse clientele, encompassing both personal and business sectors. My advisory spectrum spans from mortgage and investment advice to pension planning and protection strategies, coupled with meticulous cash flow analysis that forms the cornerstone of my practice. This breadth of experience has equipped me with a nuanced understanding of financial dynamics and a keen insight into the intricacies of client needs, paving the way for a seamless transition into the role of a Partner with Funding Nav.

What sets me apart is not just my professional acumen, but also my deep-rooted commitment to understanding the unique needs and aspirations of each client. I take a holistic approach to financial management, meticulously analysing market trends, assessing risk factors, and exploring innovative funding avenues to tailor solutions that align with my clients' goals. My passion for empowering businesses to thrive extends beyond the boardroom, reflecting my personal ethos of excellence and integrity in everything I do.

Outside of the financial realm, I'm an avid traveler who finds inspiration in exploring new cultures and cuisines. My love for adventure is complemented by my dedication to fitness and wellness, often found hitting my home gym or embarking on outdoor excursions with my family. These personal interests not only keep me grounded but also fuel my creativity and resilience in tackling complex financial challenges.

I believe in the power of forging genuine connections and leveraging diverse experiences to unlock opportunities and drive meaningful change in the businesses I serve.
