I am Managing Partner & Co-Chair at Clearwater International responsible for overall leadership and strategy.

I led the creation of the UK business, which we founded in 2003. We set up Clearwater because we saw the need for quality independent advice, but delivered from a business with scale and a focus on excellent client outcomes.

My career has spanned restructuring, banking, and corporate finance. I qualified as a Chartered Accountant at Binder Hamlyn, worked at NatWest and was a partner at BDO prior to founding Clearwater. I have worked on all kinds of deals - IPO's, Private Equity, cross border exits, carve-outs and have been advising clients for over 30 years, My favourite transactions are when we put entrepreneurs and private equity together, which I must have done more than 100 times by now.
