Clearwater International UK appoints Debt Advisory Director

Experienced corporate banker Glenn Clarke has joined corporate finance firm Clearwater International’s growing team as a Debt Advisory Director within their Manchester office.

Clarke joins Clearwater from Barclays where he was a Director in the Debt Finance team and headed up the team within the North West.
Clarke’s appointment comes as Clearwater’s Debt Advisory team sees increased levels of activity and demand for its services, having completed more than 30 deals so far in 2018 working with over 20 different funders. Notable recent completions include advising Livingbridge on its investment in online travel agent loveholidays; and securing a circa EUR85 million debt package for Wavenet, a provider of unified communications solutions.
Mark Taylor, Head of Debt Advisory at Clearwater International, says: “Glenn is a highly respected and experienced individual within the debt community, with experience of dealing with both corporate entities and private equity backed businesses, and I am delighted that he has joined the team.”
“We are building a strong and talented team across both the UK and the rest of Europe and Glenn will further strengthen our capabilities as we seek to meet the demand within the market.”
Clarke says: “I’m delighted to join Clearwater International. The debt advisory side of the business has seen continued growth and has a market leading reputation. I am looking forward to contributing to further success together and on providing the most valuable and innovative solutions to our clients.”
The latest appointment follows on from the recent promotion of Michael Loudon to Partner within the Manchester office of Clearwater International.
