Jo Thomas

Portfolio Executive

Jo works closely with SME management teams and their advisers to help businesses make the most of Finance Wales’ investments. Since joining Finance Wales in 2004, she has worked with SMEs in a diverse range of sectors, from food and drink to manufacturing to engineering.

She has a wealth of experience of how established SMEs can use follow-on rounds to finance a range of growth strategies. Jo has worked with some of the businesses in her portfolio for many years, seeing them take advantage of a number of funding rounds.

Jo specialises in developing cost-reduction strategies, favouring evolutionary rather than revolutionary growth strategies for established businesses.
