Sophie Glanfield

Sophie sits in the Investment Team, helping to evaluate and execute new investment opportunities. She is fluent in French and Spanish, so is also on hand to help the team review opportunities in Western Europe.

Sophie started her career in mid-market corporate finance at Alantra, spanning the Healthcare, Business Services and Consumer teams. During her time at Alantra, Sophie supported on our investment in Gravita, giving her a first-hand experience of the vibrancy of the Tenzing team, how we partner with advisors, the values that guide us, and how we treat people we work with. She fondly recalls the appreciation she received from Investment Lead, Mike Reynolds, for the role she played in the deal, and how this was a lightbulb moment for her.

Fast forward 18 months to summer 2022, and Sophie has joined the Investment Team to build on her experience so far. It was a combination of the learning environment (fuelled by our newly launched Altitude Academy), buying into the firm’s vision, and liking everyone she met that sealed the deal.
