Dave is a Portfolio Manager within the Portfolio Management team having joined in May 2018. He is focused on understanding the wellbeing and value of portfolio companies and particularly helping assess firms’ ability to grow.
Dave joined from Lyceum Capital where he worked as an operations and development manager. He moved into private equity from Broadridge Financial Solutions Ltd, part of an S&P 500 company specialising in FinTech, where he was financial controller. He oversaw significant changes with client revenues growing ten-fold in his time leading the finance team. This was achieved through both acquisitions and organically so he is familiar with the excitement, opportunities and risks associated with rapid growth. Prior to that Dave was at Deloitte where he worked in the products and services group. He qualified as a Chartered Accountant at a medium-sized accountancy partnership where he was able to get broad exposure dealing primarily with owner-managed SMEs.
Dave is a keen cyclist and gym frequenter, albeit not as frequent as he’d like. Mostly he blames this on his two children and absolutely not on being lazy and preferring to watch box sets of Game of Thrones. Dave has a BSc in Economics from Warwick University.
