In conversation

What do you most enjoy about working at MML?

Every day at MML genuinely starts with a positive atmosphere, talking about how we can help our portfolio companies grow or who will be the next management team we would love to partner with. MML has a truly openminded and entrepreneurial mindset which really makes it an exciting place to work.

How did your career path bring you to private equity?

I did not know much about private equity when I was 20 years old. I initially started my own wine business, which continues to develop today, before pivoting into finance. My time with Rothschild educated me on private equity. I have always liked a combination of analytical work and more organic, entrepreneurial endeavours. Mid-market private equity is a great mix of both worlds and felt like a natural evolution for me.

Name five things you could not live without.

Football, wine, family, projects, fun.
