I am an Associate Director based in the Manchester office. Since joining Clearwater in 2016, I have worked on numerous high profile M&A and debt advisory transactions as well as doing a six month international secondment in Clearwater Denmark. I work with corporate and private equity clients advising on sell-side and buy-side mandates internationally. Notable transactions include advising Imtech UK & Ireland on its cross-border sale to EDF Energy, BCN Group on its sale to Beech Tree Private Equity and Direct Healthcare Group on its debt funding for the acquisition of Kirton Healthcare.

At Clearwater, I’m able to advise a varied client base, ranging from entrepreneurial owner managers to institutional investors and multi-national corporates. Each of these clients requires a bespoke approach to meet their needs, and the challenge of maximising the value they can achieve is what keeps me motivated. The ability to work cross-border within Clearwater is also an exciting aspect of my role.

Prior to joining Clearwater I worked for PwC where I spent three years working within the audit practice and qualified as a Chartered Accountant.
