About Me

I am looking to partner with passionate and committed entrepreneurs with great ideas and exceptional people running an early stage business with sales traction. We will have shared values of growing a great business that serves society meaningfully through our people, customers, suppliers and stakeholders. We will create and grow value sustainably through our business purpose.

I am a full-time corporate advisor and angel investor. I come from a large listed corporate background where I served as a group general manager responsible for corporate finance, shareholder value management and investor relations. I was also previously a corporate finance and audit partner with a big 4 firm serving large and medium corporates across a spectrum of industries.

I have extensive experience in mentoring and growing teams, mergers and acquisitions, capital raising, strategy and execution, strategic capital allocation, capital portfolio management, corporate restructuring and rationalization, corporate and audit governance and black economic empowerment.

I grew up in a family business dealing with all aspects of the business and hold the entrepreneurial spirit at the core of my business values.

My Areas of Expertise

My mission is to bring quality growth to the businesses I invest. I do this by growing long-term active partnerships with business owners, management teams and co-investors that is underpinned by principles of sustainable value creation for all our stakeholders. Value in my investments is nurtured through active participation and mentoring at board and strategic management levels, capital injections (where appropriate) and opportunity generation ability through my networks. I bring a wealth of experience from the boardrooms of large corporates to private companies founded on sound entrepreneurial principles as well as my participation in business forums. My broad business expertise and networks help best position investments in the context of their value creation strategy.
