I joined Clearwater International as Head of Debt Advisory in 2012 from Ernst and Young. I am also a member of the UK Board.
My role involves advising corporates, private equity backed entities and entrepreneurs on putting in place suitable debt structures to support the business’ needs and requirements. In addition to this, I am proud to lead the strong and growing debt advisory team who advise on over 25 transactions a year across a range of sectors and geographical locations.
Recent transactions include arranging debt facilities to support Equistone’s investment in WHP Telecoms, advising Daisy Group on an Ares debt package consisting of over €1bn of debt facilities to support the company’s “buy and build” strategy, and advising Waterland Private Equity on raising debt finance to support the acquisition of integrated medhealth communication group.
I have over 30 years’ experience in the financial services industry, having previously worked for Ernst & Young, Banco Santander and NatWest/RBS. During my time as a corporate banker, I arranged a number of innovative and high profile debt facilities for corporates with multi banked relationships and debt requirements in excess of €50m. This experience has proved invaluable in assisting clients since my switch from providing debt to actually advising!
