Philippe Croppi

  • Senior Executive

Profile

I am a founder of Clearwater International France having been in the corporate finance industry for 30 years.

Prior to Clearwater I was a Managing Director at Close Brothers France for 10 years and worked for 10 years in M&A departments at HSBC and Société Générale. I have experience with both international and domestic strategic transactions as well as private equity deals in various industries including support services, building materials distribution, healthcare, and automotive components suppliers.

I am particularly interested in solving my clients’ problems and always aim to meet their specific needs with a customised approach. I am now focusing on deal origination and execution as a Senior Executive to Clearwater.

I am a graduate of ESCP, and also Paris Dauphine University where I completed a one-year postgraduate research degree programme in economics.
