Why you became a Geelong Angels member?
The Geelong Angels offer a wonderful opportunity to learn about and possibly invest in emerging and innovative businesses.
What you are interested in as an investor?
I have a wide range of investment interests, particularly any that have a social purpose and/or benefit to our community in some way, as well as those presenting as a growing and sustainable business idea. The character and drive of the entrepreneur/s presenting to the Geelong Angels is a critical part of my decision-making.
Your success story
My business background is predominantly in retail and property. My brother & I successfully grew a family timber and hardware business, taking it from 50 employees to over 200, expanding our operations in a very competitive market and completed a successful business transition. Now retired from that business, I have invested in a number of opportunities through the Geelong Angels and look forward to more!
