VP of International at MPLC

Clare Goodrham

Clare joined our Sherpa Programme in July 2021. Her first secondment was at MetaCompliance, where, alongside other growth initiatives, she was responsible for successfully integrating the business’ first acquisition in Denmark.

After almost two years executing value-creation projects for the cybersecurity and awareness training leader, MPLC, another of our portfolio companies, offered her a permanent role as VP of International.

Clare is now responsible for the relationships with the teams and partners in all of the countries in which MPLC operates (outside of the UK and USA) in order to drive the company’s goal of rapid, sustainable and profitable growth.

She brings with her nearly 20 years of experience in and around entrepreneurial and ambitious private equity-backed companies.

Clare remains a member of the Sherpa Alumni Programme and loves that there is nothing that someone in the group doesn’t know something about and that she has access to a very experienced and credible group of people who can help portfolio companies to realise growth. The best thing is that everyone is human too and keen to have fun!

Things she tried and failed miserably at

  • Piano lessons – She went in desperate to be able to play Bohemian Rhapsody within her first 6-week course of lessons and was rubbish. No coordination of her left and right hand!
  • Riding a motorbike – the dream of cruising around a beautiful Italian coastline on a red Ducati 900 was crushed. See above re no coordination!

Things she loves the most

  • The first coffee of the day
  • Pies – savoury, sweet – anything with pastry really (but it must be shortcrust!)
  • That feeling when you’ve done a good workout and can trade it off for pie!
  • Organising a big gathering of family and friends (even though she moans about having to organise it at the time!

Favourite gigs

  • Keane (before they were famous!) at the Cambridge Corn Exchange
  • High Contrast at the Electric Ballroom in Camden – a genius with mad hair
  • Andrea Bocelli at Wembley – he made me cry in a good way
