About me: Sean completed his Bachelors in Commerce at Curtin University, Australia, having also studied on exchange in Denmark and Canada. Sean commenced his career in Deloitte’s Business Modelling team before making a career transition into investment banking at New Holland Capital, a firm attached to Taurus Funds Management (mining private equity).

In 2021, Sean joined Axion Capital Partners as a Vice-President to work with multinational companies on complex cross-border M&A, equity capital raisings and debt advisory transactions. He advised companies in industries including mining (energy transition elements), industrials, renewables, recycling, fintech and defence.

Outside of work, Sean volunteered on the Board of Explorability, a disability advocacy not-for-profit that provides individual advocacy services to individuals, alongside their families and carers.
Sean is pursuing an MBA at LBS for its truly diverse and global cohort, leading academic staff in their fields of research and networking opportunities to support a global career. He is seeking to leverage his investment banking experience to accelerate his journey into private equity.

On weekends and in his free time, Sean can be found spending quality time with friends around a campfire, practising his (limited) abilities on a golf course or taking travel photos whilst reminiscing about his previous life as a wedding photographer.
