Jeremy Read

What strikes you immediately about Jeremy is his energy, curiosity and affability. With a refreshingly novel perspective on things, he offers strategic thinking in this VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) world.

His clients value his input on unmapped projects, often from an angle that they have missed. Jeremy’s expertise spans a wide spectrum of sectors, including food and beverage, technology, and property and construction.

Well-networked on both a personal and professional level, Jeremy is a facilitator of introductions. He brings together like-minded founders and funders to drive successful long-term ventures. He founded an ingenious platform where entrepreneurs pitch their clean-tech start-ups to investors looking for financial returns from initiatives that do good for society and planet – along the lines of the TV programme where budding inventors hope to secure swag and savvy from fire-breathing industry titans.

Based in the firm’s St Albans office, Jeremy has over 25 years’ experience of assisting businesses ranging from exciting start-ups to FTSE100 world-class organisations, working on audits, transactions and other ad hoc assignments. His particular passion is working with agile entrepreneurs, high-growth private equity and venture-backed game changers, and emerging listed groups.

Having previously worked in the big four and mid-tier firms, Jeremy set up and led offices for firms in the Home Counties and London. He has a natural affinity for and connection to these marketplaces.
