Governor Position held

Parent Governor, appointed by parents

Appointment date and term 14th December 2020, for 4 years

Why did you want to be a Governor?



Being a parent of 3 kids that attend the school, I find Sheen Mount a fascinating organisation. While I have experience working in governing bodies of large commercial organisations, I wanted to join a high-impact purpose-driven organisation such as Sheen Mount.

What do you do when you are not being a Governor?



Professionally, I am a results-oriented and purpose-driven investor and co-lead a team that identifies and executes large Private Equity transactions across Europe. We partner with management teams to deliver outstanding performance. Outside of work, I enjoy sports and travel with the family.

During your time on the governing body, what achievement has made you most proud?


I think the Governors have run a successful search for the Headteacher in 2021 and have provided support to the School during the transition. Combined with the pressure of COVID, this transition period proved to be challenging. The ability of the Governors to work closely with the School's leadership team was important to ensure the School continued to provide the best education to all and each one of its pupils. I'm proud to have contributed to such process and I look forward to working with Tom Holmes and my fellow Governors in the years to come.
