By linking my experience in Debt Advisory and M&A, I look forward to delivering flexible and innovative financing solutions to make an impact that matters with long-term target clients, as Lincoln does best.

Daniele leverages his 25 years of investment banking advisory experience both as a lender and an advisor to develop the debt advisory business for acquisitions by private equity and corporates, refinancing, recapitalisations, debt restructuring and special situations.

Daniele has arranged LBO and corporate financing deals across the full spectrum of debt (bank financing, mezzanine debt, unitranche) and capital market products, leveraging on a very strong network of relationships with local and global finance providers (banks and alternative lenders), delivering complex and innovative solutions. He also has experience across a wide array of industries, particularly in industrials, consumer, information technology and business services.

Prior to joining Lincoln International, Daniele was Partner and Head of Debt & Capital Advisory Italy at Deloitte Financial Advisory. Prior to Deloitte, Daniele spent eleven years as a General Manager and Head of Italy at IKB Deutsche Industriebank AG, where he focused on LBOs and corporate financing.
