Profile

I am a Corporate Finance Director in the Leeds office and a member of Clearwater International’s Industrials and Chemicals team. I joined Clearwater International in 2020, having previously worked at Leeds based independent corporate finance firm, Park Place Corporate Finance and before that in the corporate finance team at BDO in Leeds.

I joined Clearwater International with 15 years’ experience in M&A, having advised on a broad range of transactions including owner-managed businesses, large corporates and private equity. Recent deals include advising Endless on the disposal of Amber Road Travel to Gray Dawes Group, advising the Board of SimplyBiz Plc on the acquisition of Defaqto from Synova Capital and advising Japanese business Cornes and Company on the acquisition of Global Navigation Solutions.

I joined Clearwater International because the opportunity to join a sector-focused, international advisory firm with deep private equity relationships and debt advisory capabilities was compelling.
