Following the success of the first Sherpa Pauline Vargas, Gravita is announcing the appointment of a second Sherpa to join the company.
Simon Gateley has been recruited to join the Sherpa Programme with Gravita as his first assignment. He will work closely with new CEO Caroline Plumb, who herself joined the company in February 2022. His initial focus will be on finance process improvements before broadening into wider value creation projects, including M&A integration working alongside existing Sherpa Pauline Vargas.
The company is Tenzing’s flagship investment in the tech-enabled tax, audit, and advisory provider sector. Pauline Vargas has been working closely with Gravita since August 2021, and this is the first time a Tenzing portfolio company has created a second Sherpa position.
In announcing the new position, CEO Caroline said:
Simon joins Tenzing and Gravita following over five years of experience at EY and 18 months as Finance Director of Marketing technology specialist ProQuo AI.
