About me: Prior to starting his MBA, Declan was a strategy consultant at EY Port Jackson Partners (part of EY-Parthenon) in Sydney, Australia. He primarily advised private equity clients on investments and asset sales across a number of sectors, including software, infrastructure, healthcare, real estate and consumer products. He also has experience executing corporate and growth strategy advisory engagements. Declan has co-founded a number of ventures and enjoys engaging with entrepreneurial people and ideas.

Declan is a Chartered Accountant and holds a Bachelor of Accounting from the University of Technology, Sydney. He completed a semester studying in San Diego during his degree.

Outside of school and work, Declan enjoys playing sport, including rugby, golf and skiing. While it is difficult to replace the beaches and BBQ weather from Australia, Declan won’t tire of the London restaurant and pub scene.

Three topics I can be approached about: Private equity deal advisory; Rugby Club; entrepreneurship.
