Chris Hurley

Co-Founder, Dealspan


I am the Co-Founder of Dealspan, an independent investment boutique that provides leading independent advice to management teams across the UK from the initial deal right through to a successful exit and beyond. I am also Chair of Retail & Asset Solutions, backed by Beechbrook Capital and PNC, and Beauport backed tour operator ‘On The Go Tours’.

Prior to this, I spent more than 20 years as a private equity investor and worked for Murray Johnstone and LDC; the UK’s largest volume MBO house. At LDC, I was a member of the Investment Committee and later became Co-Chair from 2014 to 2020 – the most successful and active period in LDC’s 40-year history, investing over £3.2 billion in MBO’s and other deals.

I look forward to supporting PepTalks members by sharing insights from the investor’s perspective, and advising on how to best protect your interests and maximise value for all parties during the exit process.
