Opportunities for the future

"Over the arc of my career, it has been clear that people are the greatest assets in any business and Hg and the businesses it partners with are full of smart and inspiring people. I am excited by the opportunity to lead Hg’s already ‘best-in-class’ legal team to continue to deliver excellent execution and portfolio support to those individuals - but even more so as the team evolves as part of the next chapter of the Hg story."
