George joined BGF in early 2012 and is based in the London office. Covering London, Essex and Norfolk, George is responsible for identifying and completing new investment opportunities as well as continuing to work with the boards of BGF’s investee companies.
Prior to BGF, George advised a number of large cap companies in fundraising and M&A across the Telecoms, Media and Technology sectors as an investment banker at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
He holds a MA Oxon in Politics, Philosophy and Economics from Oxford University and a MSc in Finance from the London School of Economics.
“With a background in investment banking working on large pan-European deals, the move to BGF in 2012 was a complete change of course for me. Here I have the opportunity to work closely with management teams of some of the UK’s brightest and most aspirational companies. The added bonus is that with the financial clout of £2.5bn from the banks behind us, BGF is at the heart of the growing conversation around funding UK small and mid-sized businesses. Having the flexibility to listen to and fulfil entrepreneurs’ ambitions is a great place to be.”
