"It's a privilege meeting entrepreneurs and management teams, understanding what makes them tick and how their businesses succeed."
I’m an Investment Director at Primary.
I have been a member of the Investment Team since 2014 and work across the consumer & leisure, business services and healthcare sectors. I also co-lead origination in the North East.
It's a privilege meeting entrepreneurs and management teams, understanding what makes them tick and how their businesses succeed, ultimately partnering with a small number of them to build something special.
Prior to Primary, I gained a degree in Economics at the University of Bristol, and qualified as a Chartered Accountant at Deloitte.
