Profile

I am a Partner at Clearwater International Spain. Operating from Barcelona, I oversee the TMT sector team in Spain. I also advise clients in the business services, industrials & chemicals, consumer, and food & beverages sectors.

I previously studied at ESADE (Barcelona), Brandeis International Business School (Boston) and IESE Business School (Barcelona), from which I hold a degree in Business Administration as well as Master’s degree and an MBA.

Before joining Clearwater in 2001, I worked as Managing Director at Granville Baird Investment Banking Spain, and as Manager at Deloitte, in its corporate finance division. In that regard, I have successfully closed over 40 national and cross-border deals in multiple sectors.

At Clearwater International, I have led over 30 transactions worth a total value of more than €900,0m. These include the acquisition of Vector Software Factory by its management from Banco Santander, the acquisition of Walter Martinez by RECA Group (Würth) and the acquisition of Diode by GTI, among others.

I have the strong conviction that our M&A practice brings tremendous value and satisfaction to our clients, especially since many of them ask for our services again, several years after we concluded a deal together.
