Christian Jennings

CFO, Virgin Experience Days

BIO

I’m Christian Jennings, CFO of Virgin Experience Days, the UK’s leading experience gift provider. Since Inflexion’s investment in 2017, we successfully grew the business through expansion into new markets, both organically and geographically through acquisition, whilst investing in the company’s technology platform to improve the consumer experience, attracting new customers and increasing retention. We sold the business to Equistone in early 2023, realising a successful exit for Inflexion. Prior to this, I held several commercial finance roles in retail and B2B. Most notably, I was Group Finance Director at FTSE 250 business ZPG Plc and spent five years as Finance Director at Moonpig.com where I supported the sale to Exponent Private Equity LLP as part of the wider PhotoBox Group. I am a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.

I will be happy to help PepTalks Members and share my experiences on:

  • Expanding into new markets, organically and via M&A
  • Challenges and opportunities in the DTC and ecommerce environment
  • Effective exit prep
  • Working with new PE investors and dealing with post-acquisition matters
