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 SRL Traffic Systems, the UK’s leading manufacturer and provider of portable and temporary traffic equipment, 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!
