ClearCollect with Distinct and Concat

I need to create a collection from another collection that has 3 columns, Approver, Approver Email and Employees.

 

Approver and Approver Email need to be distinct (1 instance of Approver along with their email address) and employees needs to be a concatted column of all the employee display names that belong to the manager.

 

I am not quite sure how to build the ClearCollect statement to accomplish this.

 

I have this much

 

ClearCollect(Managers, Distinct(RequestInnput, Approver))

 

Where do I go from here or is this even possible?

                   GroupBy(RequestInput,"Approver","Approver Email","Result"),
                   "Employees",
                   Concat(Result,Employees&";")
