Billy works in the Investment Team looking for new great companies for us to invest in and then (hopefully) structuring and completing those deals.
He started out life as a solicitor at Bell Gully, voted New Zealand’s top commercial law firm, and focused on mid-market M&A as well as IPOs and general corporate work. However, after several years he realised he wasn’t suited to the legal profession (cough was a rubbish lawyer cough), preferring to spend his time helping entrepreneurs grow their business as opposed to being a solicitor focussing on what they can’t do.
Billy moved from New Zealand to London at the start of 2016 and joined our team following a brief stint in consulting. Aside from Bell Gully, Billy also helped found a start-up technology business in Auckland which has since sold to trade.
He is on the board of MPLC.
