- My Story Is
I am able to introduce the co-founder of a new private equity fund with proven track record in helping Australian brand owners achieve profitable growth and explore Asian export opportunities.
He believes there are valuable growth opportunities in Asia for owners of Tasmanian food, health and wellness brands due to the biosecurity advantage of the location.
One of the best ways to unlock this value is for the new investment fund to invest in the business and partner with the existing management team to maximize the prospect of executing the growth strategy.
He recently made his first trip to Tasmania around Launceston and plans to visit again.
MORE ABOUT HIS EXPERIENCE & PLANS
During his 12 years of experience in private equity, he has been specifically focused on investments in the Australian agribusiness/food sector in the past 5 years and led the acquisition, restructuring and expansion for one of the largest integrated branded fruit companies in Australia.
In that role, he served on the board of directors of these private horticulture/food companies.
He recently set up a new private equity fund with two partners so that he could focus more on assisting Australian brand owners to export into Asia.
One of his new partners is based in Australia and is a key architect of one of Australia’s most recently successful baby milk brands in China.

WHY MAKE THIS INTRODUCTION
Primary reasons to make this introduction are because it’s a useful way for me to:
1) Search, find and arrange new valuable opportunities for me to co-invest
2) Grow my own network of relationships and knowledge by building relationships between people who drive the food industry in Tasmania now and in the future.
4) Assist aligned partners in Tasmania
