Finance & Compliance

David Sims

Dave aka “Simmo”, is Tenzing’s Finance Director. He’s responsible for the financial, legal and compliance operations of the firm and its funds.

Dave considers himself the Kevin Costner to the deal team’s Whitney Houston, providing the firm with both the support and a secure environment in which to perform to the highest level and drive growth within each of its investments.

Private equity flows through his veins having worked in the industry since leaving university, spending years learning his trade at the UK mid-market PE firm, Phoenix Equity Partners.

After completing an MBA at Warwick Business School in 2018, he joined the Tenzing family having fallen head over heels with the ambitious and collaborative nature ingrained in the team.

Passions

  • Sports – probably more golf than football or tennis these days. Tends to follow his heart rather than his head (evident in his fantasy football team)
  • Always backs the underdog – favourite football players were Emile Heskey and Peter Crouch (see above)
