I specialise in assisting mid-market, growth-oriented private businesses move through all phases of their life cycle – including creation, growth and transition.

My corporate advisory background spans merchant and investment banking, private equity and venture capital in the food industry, and specialist funds management in life sciences. I have acted in over 50 transactions in the Australian and New Zealand major and mid-market segments – including capital raisings, acquisitions, MBOs and divestitures.

I have led several companies as MD and Chairman in the commercial and not-for-profit sectors, and acted as a pivotal figure in the transfer of business skills to several leading Australian not-for-profits.
