“Having ‘served an apprenticeship’ in corporate business for over thirty years, I now have the privilege of working with management teams across different sectors, and at differing stages of the commercial lifecycle, to fix and build companies – and to create tangible value for each of the stakeholders.”
Steve takes the role of Chairman or CEO at newly invested portfolio businesses, and works with management from day one through to successful exit, via restructuring, accelerated growth or a combination of both.
Steve is an experienced Chairman and CEO, with a proven track record of building and developing teams to restructure and grow businesses.
Following an early career that took in four major UK companies and led to several Board appointments, including two as Managing Director, he joined the US restructuring outfit Gordon Brothers. Steve led a number of marquee deals, as well as taking Managing Director roles at two of their subsidiary businesses.
He set up his own practice in 2012 and has since focused on the successful turnaround and growth of various companies in the private equity arena. These include aeroinv.com for KPMG and Tie Rack, Rolling Luggage, Summit Media, Hotelcare, Independent Group and Morses Club – including the integration of Shopacheck and subsequent stock market flotation – for Rcapital.
