Profile

I am Chairman of Clearwater International in the UK, moving into this role in 2020 following 15 months as a non-exec on the Board. I have seen close-up the way that Clearwater International lives its values of transparency, trust and respect and believe these will become even more important as we support our clients - established and new - to tackle the challenges and also the great opportunities in front of them.

I currently sit on the Board of EVO Group, the UK’s largest business supplies wholesaler, and I have previously held positions on the boards of four private equity backed businesses, two being non-exec Chair roles, one as CFO and also one M&A/integration role. Prior to moving across to the company side of the Board table, I worked in corporate finance with PW in the North East and latterly for 17 years as a partner with EY in Manchester and London, during which period I also took the role as UK & Ireland Managing Partner and sat on EY's Transactions Board.
