Based in Edinburgh, Alan joined Maven in July 2012 and is responsible for sourcing and executing new equity investments with a particular focus on development capital investments in high growth disruptive businesses. Following an investment, Alan works with investee management teams to support on strategy and growth and holds a number of board seats.

Alan joined Maven from Quayle Munro where he had been recruited to help establish a Debt Advisory and Corporate Finance business in Scotland. Prior to this Alan spent seven years with RBS predominately working in the Structured Finance team financing mid-market private equity transactions. He latterly had responsibility for a portfolio of corporate and leveraged clients.

Alan holds an Honours degree in Accountancy from the University of Glasgow and is a Chartered Accountant – qualifying with the Institute of Chartered Accountants Scotland (ICAS) through the unconventional TOPP scheme during his time with RBS.

Outside of work, Alan enjoys fitness, attempting the occasional triathlon and playing golf. The majority of his time and enjoyment however is spent with his family and two young children.

It’s great to be part of the SME community and to work with and support entrepreneurs and management teams. The opportunity to be involved in a small part of their journey and help them achieve their goals is incredibly rewarding.
