John Clarke

Investment Director
North West

John supports ambitious management teams across the North West looking to take the next step in their growth journey with the backing of a private equity partner.

Since joining LDC in 2017, he has worked on a series of successful partnerships including the firm’s investment in MSQ Partners where LDC is supporting its international roll-out, the investment in luxury holiday cottage provider Lakelovers and construction software specialist Eque2. With John’s support, Eque2 has already driven double digit revenue growth.

A qualified Chartered Accountant and mathematics graduate from Imperial College, London, John has more than 15 years’ M&A experience and has previously worked for Clearwater and Grant Thornton.

As well as spending time with my four children, I enjoy squash, cycling, and trying not to get too excited about Liverpool FC’s recent rise to the top!
