Louise founded Gunner & Co. in 2014, after a decade of general management roles internationally. At that time, the M&A market was just taking shape, and Louise could see an opportunity to build a service for retiring IFAs to truly be a partner in the succession planning process.

Being service focused from the outset, the values the business was built on remain today, values Louise aligns closely to. Establishing and understanding client needs and delivering against those is central to all we do.

Louise runs the business day to day, with a particular focus on delivering insight and guidance to buyers and sellers through workshops, webinars and online guides. Louise also leads Gunner & Co.’s philanthropic activities, including being a trustee of one of our two chosen charities, Do Slumthing.

With a decade of brokerage and consultancy experience, there isn’t a deal shape Louise hasn’t seen, and is on speed dial for many prominent players across the press and market.

Outside of Gunner & Co., Louise enjoys running and talking about her Peloton, and spending time chasing her young son.
