Julian Rothwell

CFO, Walstead Group


I am currently CFO at Walstead, Europe’s largest independent commercial web offset printing business, which is following a buy and build strategy and has been backed by Rutland Partners since 2017. Prior to Walstead, I was CFO at Payzone, an ATM and payments business, which was backed by Duke Street Capital when I joined in 2010. I led the sale of the ATM business in UK and Germany to Cardtronics Inc., a US trade player, and the sale of its five payment businesses: Payzone Ireland through a secondary buyout to Cardinal Capital Group; Payzone Sweden through a secondary buyout by Advent & Bain; Payzone Greece to a local trade player; Payzone UK to Grovepoint Capital; and finally in 2017, Payzone Romania was sold to Paypoint plc. Before joining Payzone, I was a divisional MD of the Global Outsourcing division of Travelex, which at the time was backed by Apax Partners.

I enjoy supporting PepTalks members on investor relations, refinancing, exits, professionalising and building finance functions which allow businesses to scale.
