Business Growth Manager
As Business Growth Manager, I am based in Innovate UK KTN’s Investment & Business Development team.
I studied engineering and materials science and initially worked in corporate R&D before moving into Venture Capital for a US company. After an MBA at Imperial College, I moved into senior executive roles with two global industrial companies involved in mechanical engineering and construction materials respectively.
After four years working in Private Equity on re-structuring and performance enhancement, I started my own consultancy focusing on advisory services for fund raising and strategy in infrastructure projects and technology companies.
I have substantial experience in change management, NPD, strategic global marketing of technologies and knowledge of a wide range of overseas markets and business cultures. I am also a research associate at the Department of Engineering at the University of Cambridge, where I have collaborated on projects around risk and resilience in specific areas of materials and civil engineering.
