As one of the founders of the Group, we invest in high growth professional recruitment and staffing companies.
My career commenced with Roy James & Co, a prominent stockbroker in Birmingham. This was followed by 16 years at Computer People, the last 5 years as Managing Director, leading the company through a period of significant expansion and profit growth. During this time I also sat on the Group Board of Ajilon, incorporating Computer People, Office Angels, Roevin, Jonathan Wren, Ajilon Consulting and Ajilon Finance. Upon leaving Ajilon, I completed a number of ‘Industry Expert’ interim assignments for the Private Equity community before starting with Elan Computing in November 2007.
I joined Elan as Managing Director and was responsible for their core staffing operations across the UK and Ireland, with a particular focus on the restructure and development of the contingent staffing businesses.
In 2011 joined Hamilton Bradshaw as Investor / Director to launch a fund investing in white collar professional staffing businesses. In 2015 these investments were lifted out of HB to form a standalone recruitment Group, now called InvestR. Our goal is to continue growing, with a view to leading a secondary Management Buy out within 2 years.
