Having worked with the Silverpeak team since its inception, as a Vice President Kieran brings 6 years of experience and a track record of successfully completed transactions.

Based in the London office, Kieran’s interests lie in working with IP-based businesses across enterprise software & SaaS, enabling technologies and IT services. In particular, he has sought to develop expertise in enterprise software, having played an integral role in the sale of smart ticketing software provider Applied Card Technologies to Fujitsu, the sale of last-mile logistics software vendor Blackbay to Blu Jay Solutions, and the Series E round for cloud storage software business Scality.

To broaden his experience, Kieran has also completed an 18-month secondment with RB Partners in Moscow, Russia, where he continued to focus on advising companies and investors in the technology and media sectors.

One of the most memorable transactions Kieran has been involved with at Silverpeak was advising H.I.G. on the acquisition of the subsea business of Xtera Communications.

“This was a formative experience, working closely with the senior management team of a publicly listed company and a top tier private equity house, where the level of intensity was very high and the complexity second-to-none.”

Kieran graduated with a masters degree in economics from Cambridge University and is a CFA charter holder. Aside from work, Kieran enjoys sports and languages – he is a keen follower of football, tennis and boxing, and is also currently learning Russian.
