Stella was in the 99/00 full time MBA cohort, and went on to have a varied career in Finance Director and Managing Director roles within fast growth, private equity backed businesses.
Having recently sold a pharmaceutical tech enabled services business to private equity for the third time, Stella has stepped down from full time roles to take on a more varied portfolio. As well as being an Operating Partner for Bridgepoint’s newest fund (Bridgepoint is a major international private equity group), she is a business angel investor and Chair of a charity. Stella is relishing the opportunity to be more closely involved with Cranfield again, and she regularly mentors students on business start up weekends. As a hobby, Stella is a prolific property investor, which all started when she bought a house local to Cranfield for her MBA year!
“The value of the Cranfield MBA grew over time, and it has definitely enhanced my career. I am delighted to be able to give some time and expertise back to the school now, and to see the positive changes which have been made in recent years”.
