I am a Associate Director based in our Leeds office, having joined Clearwater in January 2021.

Prior to joining Clearwater I spent three years in Grant Thornton’s Corporate Finance team in Leeds where I completed transactions across a number of different sectors. My recent completed deals include YFM Equity Partner’s Series A fundraise into Force 24 and the sale of pet food business Hollings to Assisi Pet Care, backed by Harwood Capital.

I graduated from The University of Manchester with a first class honours degree in Civil and Structural Engineering (MEng), before qualifying as a Chartered Accountant as part of Deloitte’s audit team.

I joined Clearwater because of the culture, the opportunity to help grow the new office in Leeds and to continue to advise a variety of clients across the Yorkshire region.
