What else do you do?

Corporate Development & Strategy for The Financial Times. I work on M&A, growth equity and venture capital investments made by the Financial Times Group. We invest in the software, media and business services verticals, supporting our specialist news, events, consulting divisions and of course, FT.com.


What do you love about what you do?

I love working on transactions that can be transformative, both for the FT group and for founders who unlock knowledge and experience of a 136 year old institution.


Who is the archetype March Woman to you?

A March Woman is open and warm, yet she has a sharp intellect and a clear purpose. She is always looking to create value through partnership and is always willing to learn.


What do you think is the best thing about March Women?

The best thing about March Women, is being able to connect with people who can relate to the joys and woes of working on M&A deals. The collective knowledge and experience of a lively and welcoming community is unmatched.
