Oliver Connolly, Business Development Director


I’ve known Oliver for around 18 months and in that time, I’ve found him to not only be one of the most engaging and professional business development people in the North West advisory market but also the most active in terms of introducing businesses to Foresight. I find him passionate about his market and look forward to hopefully doing many more deals together in the future.

Matthew Pomroy on Oliver Connolly

Investment Manager at Foresight Venture Capital

We’ve been working with Turner Parkinson and in particular Oliver for a little over a year help on their TP360 retained offering which has helped transform how we run our legal & HR systems. We are a high growth business entering large complex contracts with quickly evolving needs and it was vital we undertook a more stringent approach in these areas. Oliver is our first point of call on all matters, with excellent business acumen, something you don’t always get from a Business Development professional. In our dealings I’ve found him to be incredibly personable and able to see the bigger picture when it comes to real life business problems and provide solutions to match. With an entrepreneurial approach that replicates our approach to business we felt comfortable transferring our business across.
