I have been a specialist headhunter since 1997. Within Corporate Finance I run searches across Management, which includes succession planning, Coverage (geographic and sector), M&A, ECM and Corporate Broking. Most of the mandates have had a geographic focus on the UK and across Western Europe, but I’ve also worked on assignments in Russia and Eastern Europe. Whilst I have completed searches in every sector covered by investment banks, my more in-depth experience has been in TMT, FIG, oil & gas, utilities, consumer & retail, healthcare and the industrials sectors.

Jo and I founded The Lothbury Partnership in August 2016 following 16 years of working together at The Rose Partnership, where I jointly ran the Investment Banking practice with Jo since 2006. I joined The Rose Partnership in 2000 following eight years as an Officer in the British Army, having completed Officer Training at the Royal Academy Sandhurst in 1989.
