Libby heads up Piper’s added value team, which answers Piper’s key commercial questions during due diligence and post-investment helps our brands better understand and communicate with their customers, through research, branding and marketing.

She has developed her customer focused understanding of branded businesses through her work with over 30 different brands in the last 30 years.

She was also intimately involved in the start-up and growth of their highly successful bar brand Pitcher & Piano.

It’s the pushing and the probing which is so important for us. The power of the questions is so important. She does that in the right way. She always seems to ask the pertinent questions. Libby is an incredibly impressive lady with a wealth of experience
