Micky is a founding member of Fairbridge Capital (Pty) Ltd which was established in early 2008. Prior to this, Micky completed his articles at Ernst & Young, Johannesburg in 1998 before moving to London where he spent some time with Credit Suisse and Cavendish Corporate Finance. During his three years at Cavendish, a boutique mid-market sell side corporate finance house, Micky gained valuable experience in MBO's and the private equity arena and was involved in advising a number of vendors on the sale of their businesses valued at between £10 million and £100 million.
On returning to South Africa in 2004, he joined Investec's Growth & Acquisition Finance team where he was involved in the funding of a number of transactions in the mid-market space, including the early funding of the currently listed Afrimat Ltd.
Micky left Investec at the end of 2006 to join ABSA Acquisition & Leveraged Finance, a start up team focussed on the funding of mid-market transactions, where he was responsible for funding of the Kulingile Metals Group buyout by a consortium led by Blackstar, and its subsequent purchase of Global Roofing Solutions.
