I lead the business services team at Clearwater International. I joined in 2008, having spent 10 years at KPMG where I specialised in corporate finance and established a business services team. I joined Clearwater International because of the people, the culture and the opportunity to grow Clearwater’s business services sector team and London-based private equity network

I’ve completed over 60 deals worth c. €1.5bn, the majority of which have involved companies in the business services sector. I have significant experience in recruitment, education & training and consultancy transactions, and have also worked on a number of successful facilities management and outsourcing deals.

Some of my deal highlights include: the sale of ProClinical to ICS; the sale of PSL to Sodexo Global Support Services; the recapitalisation of Chase Search and Selection; the cross-border sale of Credo to US-based Teneo Holdings; the MBO of GatenbySanderson; and securing a bespoke financing package for the development of London Square. I enjoy building good and trusted long term relationships with my clients and supporting them on their journey to create value and ultimately exit their businesses.

I have worked in the corporate finance industry for over 20 years, and hold a degree in Economics and Accounting from the University of Bristol.
