In conversation

What most attracted you to joining the MML Capital team?

Everyone I spoke with before joining mentioned the brilliant culture and people, and as cliché as it sounds, the culture and people really do make MML a great place to work. The firm has an impressive track record and an exciting growth trajectory – I’m delighted to now be a part of it.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

One of the things I enjoy most about my role is the variety it entails. I get to work with intelligent and driven people across various teams and workstreams.

How did your career path bring you to work for a private equity house?

I started out working in public market compliance and regulatory reform roles at a couple of investment banks. While at Goldman Sachs, the opportunity arose for me to provide compliance coverage for some private market teams. I was fascinated by all parts of the investment process and the associated compliance points that can arise throughout. After a while, I decided to see what life was like at a private equity firm and made the move to CapVest. I really enjoyed my time there and it reinforced that I wanted to continue my career within private equity. And here I am!

What does life look like when you leave the office?

I love spending time outdoors – normally running (slowly!) or hiking.
