I am a Partner within the industrials & chemicals team, specialising in industrial technologies and services. Industrial technologies include specialist manufacturing, process and product automation, industrial ICT and myriad other providers of niche products and services with technology at their core. Industrial services includes the service models that wrap around technology providers but also encompasses the wider service economy that supports critical infrastructure and production in a smart economy including utilities, transport and energy management; it’s a fast moving and highly interesting space to be involved in!
Recent deal highlights include advising MacDonald Humfrey on its €300m sale to L-3 Communications; advising Imtech UK on its sale to EDF Energy Services; and the sale of Burnt Tree to Enterprise Rent-A-Car. I enjoy really getting to understand and work with clients that challenge the status quo through technology and innovative business models, helping them to secure the right outcomes to enable their businesses to grow and reach their full potential whilst meeting the shareholders' wider objectives.
I am a founding partner of Clearwater International UK, a business which we have grown substantially since its inception without losing its sense of identity, fun or focus on client service and of which I am immensely proud.
I have over 20 years’ experience in corporate finance, and hold a degree in Economics from Manchester Metropolitan University.
