Please tell us about your career before InfraRed

Prior to InfraRed I worked in KPMG’s Corporate Finance team and joined as an Analyst in 2012.  During my 5 years here I have worked across the property and infrastructure sectors helping clients with M&A, structured financings and corporate strategy.    

Which aspects appealed to you about our organisation

I wanted to join a smaller organisation with growth plans.  I bought into the vison of the business and saw opportunity for progression.  So far, so good!

What do you enjoy most about working here?

For me it’s all about the people.  It’s a genuine differentiator and I feel very fortunate to enjoy working with everyone at InfraRed.  The investment industry is demanding, but I have always felt supported by all my colleagues and friends here.   Everyone in the business was immediately supportive when I requested a 3 month sabbatical.  I took to the French coastline to surf the Atlantic with my wife Sophie and our 3 year old daughter.  In addition to relaxing, this provided time to reflect on broader aims and ambitions, make great memories and spend quality time with my daughter before she started school.  

What advice would you give to others considering a role here?

Be engaged and be yourself.  We all want to work with kind, honest and considerate people.  

Fast facts about you

I mis-spent my childhood wanting to be a professional golfer. My favoured activities are surfing and tennis these days; it’s too heart-breaking to play golf!  I have supported Tottenham Hotspur since I was about 5. My wife and I now have 2 young children – Annabel and Freddie.
