I am a Partner in Clearwater International having co-founded the Irish business, previously Core Corporate Finance. We successfully merged with Clearwater in October 2015 to provide our clients with unique access to global M&A opportunities and financing solutions as well as strengthening our sectoral expertise. I have over 16 years’ experience in corporate finance having worked in Ireland, the Middle East and the US. I was previously Managing Director of Key Capital Bahrain and qualified as a Chartered Accountant at Deloitte.

My core expertise is focused on leading M&A, disposals, management buy-outs, corporate fundraisings and capital restructurings. I have completed transactions across various key sectors including industrials, business services, technology, healthcare, food, energy & utilities, financial services and real estate.

My recent transaction highlights, with an aggregate value in excess of €1.4bn, includes the significant investment by Susquehanna Growth Equity in Poppulo, a pioneering global internal communications software company; the cross border merger of KN Group with French-based Circet to create a market leader in European telecommunications services, backed by Advent International; the management buyout of H&MV Engineering, a specialist international high voltage electrical contracting company; and the sale of Brightwater Recruitment, Ireland’s leading independent recruitment firm.

As owners of our business, we are persistent and passionate about what we do and our aim is to work with ambitious, like minded clients to help develop their own corporate strategies and realise capital value. I enjoy leading and motivating our high-performing team to deliver the best possible outcome for our clients
