Raf is my younger brother so safe to say I know him well. From a young age, he demonstrated entrepreneurial flair, setting up and commerci ... alizing his own magazine business in his teens, creating a high school year book before launching the London School of Economics year book. Trading in stock and demonstrating a ravenous appetite for financial market insights and geo-political issues, he was the perfect hire as a financial accounts assistant at Eurosport TV (then Bouygues Group). We worked together for 4 years at Eurosport Television and within a short space of time Raf was promoted to Head of Finance, quickly recognized for his analytical and strategic approach to the business, despite his relatively young age. Raf later exported his experience and skill set to Australia and was appointed Financial Controller & CFO in the Mining and Private Healthcare sectors by the age of 30. He has since grown his experience in the Financial sector. Raf has always been passionate about start-ups and potential business models, so it is no surprise that he should be taking this exciting new career step-change and focussing more energy into advising other likeminded entrepreneurs. Raf is very tenacious (he will tell you about his numerous property renovations, strict boot camp training and other extra curricular projects) and isn't afraid to speak his mind and take risks if he believes in something. He will never open his mouth or suggest a solution unless he has carefully considered every aspect and weighed out the opportunities and pitfalls beforehand. This is a rare quality in any business partner. Whilst I will be naturally biased as a proud, older sibling, you can be confident meeting Raf that he is a smart, considered business partner able to bring a lot of early grey hairs, experience and entrepreneurial flair to the table.
