As an Associate Director in our UK Deal Origination team, I am responsible for business development activities across our TMT and Healthcare sectors and Debt Advisory service line. In addition, I am responsible for maintaining relationships within the private equity and professional community and expanding Clearwater International’s presence within our specific areas of focus.

I have originated several Clearwater transactions including the LDC-backed MBO of SRL Traffic Systems, PSL Purchasing’s cross-border sale to Sodexo, e-days’ growth capital investment from Palatine Private Equity and FM Conway’s substantial debt raise.

I joined Clearwater International in December 2013 having graduated from Nottingham Business School with a 2:1 in Business Economics. I captain Clearwater’s Midlands Football Team, founded a Young Professional Network in the East Midlands region and regularly represent Clearwater in charity work including our recent South Africa project in association with The Footprints Foundation.
