“Having spent time in the senior management team of a fast growing mid-market private business, the day to day challenges facing founders and management are familiar. The support of an investment partner who is culturally aligned and can bring not only capital, but know how, relationships, broad perspective and a growth mindset can make a world a of difference.”

I have been involved in mid-market private businesses for over 15 years in advisory, senior management and investing capacities. I started my career at PwC gaining experience in the private clients, transaction services and M&A divisions before taking on a COO/CFO role at a growing national FMCG business. At Advent I have been fortunate to be part of the deal teams on Gourmet Garden, Integral Diagnostics, Junior Adventures Group, Frosty Boy, Tribe Breweries, Compass Education and Medtech.

I really enjoy the opportunity at Advent to partner with passionate founders and management teams to enhance and grow businesses across a range of industries.

My undergraduate degree was a Bachelor of Commerce & Bachelor of Electrical & Electronic Engineering (Hons) from the University of Melbourne, I’m a qualified Chartered Accountant and graduate member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Outside of work I am a passionate skier, enjoy running (including completing the NY marathon) as well as spending time with friends and family, including three young kids.
