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.
