Gareth takes responsibility for originating, evaluating and executing new investment opportunities.
Prior to Tenzing, he spent over a decade with Inflexion Private Equity, helping it grow from a relative new entrant with a £165m UK fund to a broad based international private equity business managing over £2bn. In that time he completed 13 investments, with a particular focus on the TMT and Travel sectors. These included FDM, Closer Still, Atcore, IMD, CableCom, Mobica, Reward Gateway, On The Beach, Scott Dunn, and Reed & Mackay.
Prior to that, Gareth was a TMT-focused corporate finance adviser for 11 years, acting as European Head of Software for UBS Investment Bank and also Co-head of Technology for Close Brothers, now DC Advisory. He started his career as a computer consultant with Price Waterhouse specialising in analysis of fintech systems.
“What I enjoy the most is helping companies grow and realise their full potential in a fast-paced, tech-enabled environment. I’m really excited about the energy and ambition of Tenzing itself and working with the many excellent companies they are backing.”
Gareth is a keen pilot and long distance runner. He also loves adventure travel with a curious passion for communist countries and volcanos, having visited oddities such as North Korea, Chernobyl and the post-eruption ash fields of Mt Pinatubo. Whilst his two young children try to keep him to more standard places, he recently escaped and spent the night on top of a live volcano in Ethiopia. He is also a keen music fan and you will find him at several gigs a month.
