I’m CEO at Clearwater International, having joined the business in 2021.

I have close to 30 years of experience in mid-market corporate finance across a range of geographical markets. Prior to joining Clearwater International I was Managing Partner at London-based boutique and prior to that I spent 15 years at PwC building and running the CF businesses in Spain (2003-2011), Canada (2011-2014) and the USA (2014-2019), as well as sitting on the Global CF Board with responsibility for North and South America (2012-2019). Prior to PwC, I was a CF partner at Deloitte following their merger with Arthur Andersen where I originally qualified as a Chartered Accountant before becoming a founding member then partner in the CF business.

Clearwater International has built a very impressive pan-European business and I feel both humbled and energized to have the opportunity to lead the next stage in its development. I will be drawing on my years of experience leading M&A advisory teams in both small and large M&A markets to help this talented team drive the business to the next level.
