Alongside my fellow partners, I set up Horizon Capital with a clear vision to be a sector specialist in technology and services businesses using buy and build in every investment we make. I started my career in the Corporate Finance team at PwC, having graduated from the University of Bath with a BSc in Business Administration. I moved into an investing role early in my career as I wanted to work with management teams beyond just the transaction.
I now have over two decades of investing experience and have had the privilege of working with some exceptionally talented teams in building market leading businesses.
