“This is my story”
Those closest to me and professional acquaintances alike consider me to be filled with drive, focus and fondness for making an impact.
I started my technology career by successfully convincing a high-level IT manager at a major bank to take me on as a contractor for an important data migration project. Despite having no proven experience at the time, I was not only successful in completing the project but delivered, the six-month project in just three months. This single experience helped define the next 16 years of my career, having by now developed a zeal for trying and learning new things.
Taking on new challenges is what drives me to this day – passion is what has fueled my career. Perhaps more importantly, my understanding of people has made me an inspirational leader.
Today, I am an Investor & Strategic Advisor where I am focused on Mergers & Acquisitions for Small to Medium-sized Enterprises. I acquire equity stakes in companies with growth prospects, then strategically assist with a view of ultimately securing a realization of my investment through roll-ups or sale. My primary interest in on mergers and acquisitions, roll-ups, business rescue turnarounds, transformations and strategies to help unlock value.
In my spare time, I have a fondness for anything on two-wheels especially if it has a throttle and a clutch. Travelling to tropical destinations helps both broaden my horizons and rejuvenate me – temporarily escaping the cold of Canada is also a bonus. I also love nothing more than taking part in local attractions, events, festivals and culinary experiences.
