I have extensive experience in the exhibition industry, having held the role of CEO at Tarsus Group for over two decades. I led Tarsus through a delisting process in 2019 as it was taken private by Charterhouse with an enterprise value of £668m and a multiple of 17 times average EBITDA. We continued to grow the business via acquisitions and strategic expansion into emerging markets, and sold Tarsus to Informa in March 2023 for £755m, marking a successful exit for Charterhouse. Following the sale, I transitioned to an advisory role at Informa which I held until the end of 2023.
I look forward to supporting PepTalks members with:
- Tackling the challenges of being a first-time PE-backed CEO
- International expansion and M&A
- Preparing the business for a successful trade sale
