1. WHAT WAS YOUR BACKGROUND PRIOR TO JOINING MOORHOUSE?
I was a Director in Deloitte’s Transaction Service group for 6 years, working with FTSE100 clients on their integration and separation projects. Prior to that, I was in KPMG’s Transaction Services team doing similar types of work.
2. WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY IN THE M&A SERVICE LINE AT MOORHOUSE LIKE?
It’s very varied and that’s what excites me about being at Moorhouse. It ranges from working alongside client teams on delivering their integration or carve out, internal discussions on bids and sales pitches as well as developing new propositions and thought leadership perspectives. A considerable amount of our time is spent on client site, working with the client’s team to shape and design the strategy for their integration or separation project and then supporting them to deliver the benefits. All great fun!
3. WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE PART ABOUT WORKING AT MOORHOUSE?
The opportunity to help grow the business and make a difference. There’s a real enthusiasm to drive things forward and support clients on their most important strategic programmes. Consultants at all levels have the opportunity to be proactive and get involved in driving initiatives forward. It’s a hugely rewarding place to work & individuals are encouraged to take control of their own careers.
4. WHAT IS THE MOST USEFUL CAREER ADVICE YOU HAVE RECEIVED TO DATE?
Stay positive and seize opportunities when they arise.
5. OUTSIDE OF WORK, HOW DO YOU SPEND YOUR FREE TIME?
Having two teenage sons who are into their sports (football, rugby, swimming, etc.) means that ‘Dad’s taxi’ is kept busy at the weekends! I also try and find time to get out on my road bike and take to the country roads for some much-needed exercise.
