Corporate Finance Adviser, Business Valuations Expert, Partner at PEM Corporate Finance


A three way perspective on the life blood of a Venture Capital investor, as a corporate finance advisor, and as a finance director in industry.

Partner at PEM Corporate Finance, the largest accounting practice in Cambridge. Founded in 1875 it has great heritage, but is also an award winning an entrepreneurial business.

PEM Corporate Finance advises unquoted businesses on everything to do with raising and investing cash, with buying and selling businesses, and with strategic reviews. We also advise on management buyouts. And we provide formal business valuations.

I have decades of experience in venture capital, as a corporate finance adviser and strategist, and as a manager in industry.

After qualifying as a Chartered Accountant I spent six years in venture capital with 3i plc. I led and managed transactions and a portfolio of investments in a variety of industries including technology and life sciences.

As a corporate finance adviser, primarily with Ernst & Young, I was lead adviser on a wide range of transactions including management buyouts, corporate disposals, start ups and technology financings. As a member of Ernst & Young’s national corporate finance technology team, I had a particular focus on finance raising and business planning.

Completing my perspective on corporate financing and strategy I has spent time as Finance Director of a UK based manufacturing business, and CFO of a Cambridge based technology company. I retain non-executive directorships with these companies.
