Prior to founding Black Mountain Partners in 2018, Oliver was MD of Porto Montenegro for 11 years, where he led the development and operation of a mixed-use luxury super yacht marina, including over 250 residential units, 50 retail stores, 450 marina berths, a 110 key 5-star Regent hotel, a Knightsbridge boarding school and multiple amenities. The total investment over this period reached approximately €450million, backed by Peter Munk (founder of Barrick Gold), Lord Jacob Rothschild (Rothschild Investment Trust – RIT) and Bernard Arnault (Groupe Arnault).
