Justin Stead

CEO, Radley & Co


I am Justin Stead, former CEO of luxury handbag retailer Radley, which is backed by Freshstream Private Equity. I have since transitioned to a portfolio career and taken on Non-Executive Chair and Advisor roles at a range of consumer businesses, including Baby Mori, Le Col, Desmond & Dempsey and Navygrey.

I was previously CEO of Aurum Holdings, whose portfolio of brands included Goldsmiths, Boutique by Goldsmiths, Mappin & Webb and Watches of Switzerland. During my tenure as CEO of Aurum, the business quadrupled EBITDA from £6M to £24M+ in the space of four years during a challenging economic recession. Thanks to this stellar performance, we successfully sold the business to Apollo Private Equity in 2013.

I will be helping PepTalks members to: successfully achieve significant growth and returns during challenging periods.
