A former EY Debt Advisory Partner, Gary identified a gap in the regional private debt market and founded TDC in September 2015 to fill that gap and service the needs of the mid-market corporates operating in the regions. Together with his EY colleague, Richard Williams, they raised a maiden fund of £100m and recruited an experienced and high-profile team to work with them from their Manchester base. As well as leading the team, Gary is responsible for development of the fund strategy, investor relations and fund raising and he also heads up the Investment Committee.
Gary has spent two successful decades in the northern corporate finance market across a banking and advisory career and has a strong network of contacts throughout the North of England and proven experience of deal-making in the regional markets. He offers strong leadership, relationship and credit skills and has executed multiple debt finance deals throughout his career, many with mid-market PLCs and SMEs.
Prior to heading up EY’s UK Debt Advisory team for eight years from his Manchester base, Gary had a successful career in banking and corporate lending within a number of blue-chip financial institutions including RBS, Lloyds and Bank of Ireland.
