I’m a partner in Grant Thornton’s Transactions group and the leader of our national practice for mergers and acquisitions and private equity. I bring more than 29 years of experience - including more than 150 successful transactions - to my work with private, mid-market companies across many different industries.
My particular focus is on mergers, acquisitions and divestitures, equity and debt financing solutions, management buy-outs and recapitalizations.
Over my career I’ve been involved in corporate finance and transactions from various perspectives. I was a partner and co-founder with Solaris Capital Advisors and before that Orenda Corporate Finance, which was successfully sold to Ernst & Young. I worked with the M&A group within the capital markets group for a large Canadian investment bank, providing advisory services to corporate clients, and I was vice president of corporate finance for a Big Four accounting firm.
I’ve built a network of long-standing relationships within the North American private equity community – an important asset that I can tap into for my clients.
