An accountant by training (please, read on….) I’ve been at KPMG for 15 years. Most of that time has been working with big technology companies across the world (with a three year detour into Oil and Gas).
In 2011, I left the shiny buildings (and suits) of Canary Wharf to set-up our early stage technology group. Based in Shoreditch the team helps companies of all shapes and sizes across the technology sphere with their business and finance issues, working directly with entrepreneurs, accelerators and the investment community. A personal passion of mine is the (still uptapped) potential of start-up and corporate collaboration.
Since 2014 I’ve been helping turn KPMG into a technology enabled professional services firm.
