Gareth Healy

 

Gareth sits in the Investment Team at Tenzing in a role largely focused on finding and leading investments that he has a real passion for.

 

He’s spent over 20 years either advising or investing in technology-driven companies, so he dedicates a lot of time to working with the team, helping everyone with opportunity conversion, deal structuring and convincing management teams to pick Tenzing as their next investor.

 

It was after becoming European Head of Software for UBS and Co-Head of Technology at Close Brothers, now DC Advisory, Gareth followed his ambition to get closer to the companies and their strategic journey by becoming a private equity investor with Inflexion Private Equity. There followed an exciting 11 years of leading investments in the TMT and Travel sectors as Inflexion grew from a £165m fund to over £2bn.

 

It wasn’t long before Gareth followed his old colleague, Christian, to help build Tenzing, as a new and very different entry to the UK private equity landscape. He’s been loving the journey ever since, building a fast-growing firm and helping the sort of businesses he has the most passion for – dynamic, tech-centric companies with big ambitions.

 

Passions

 

  • Music – you’ll find him at gigs and clubs regularly
  • Skiing – always a bit too fast for his skill level!
  • Adventure travel with a special interest in ex-Communist countries and volcanoes. He’s been to both North Korea, visited Chernobyl and slept on top of live volcanoes

 

TV

 

  • Narcos
  • Breaking Bad
  • Fleabag
  • Game Changers
  • Documentaries of all types – always wants to be learning

 

Books & Podcasts

 

  • The Four: How Amazon, Apple, Facebook and Google are run, Scott Galloway
  • The Hard Thing About Hard Things, Ben Horowitz – excellent CEO advice from a legendary investor
  • Anything by Martin Amis or Will Self – they’ve got such wonderfully strange minds that it’s a joy to enter their worlds!

 

Confessions

 

  • He’s a closet hippy who studied Buddhism at university and had long hair and a beard – photos available (but only if you let Tenzing invest in your company)
