Rebecca joined Maven as an Investment Manager in July 2023, as part of the North East regional investment team based in our Newcastle and Durham offices. Her main responsibilities include deal origination and execution across the North East of England.

Prior to joining Maven, Rebecca worked in EY’s Private Capital Tax team, advising both individuals and businesses, working on a range of projects including residence and domicile planning, business structuring, succession planning and implementing family investment and trust structures. She also worked with clients in the wealth and asset management space, including hedge funds and private equity funds on a range of projects. Rebecca is a charted tax advisor (ATT/CTA qualified). Outside of work, Rebecca plays netball and enjoys CrossFit.

The North East region is home to aspiring talent and innovation and I am privileged to work closely with businesses in need of growth funding to achieve their ambitions. I am passionate about building relationships with female founders and supporting them in their investment journey.

Maven has a fantastic network of regional offices with broad experience and skillsets, which enables us to leverage our internal network and utilise our range of expertise to create funding packages that work as well as adding significant value to our investee companies.
