Nick Williams

CFO, Native Instruments


I am currently CFO at Native Instruments, a leading developer and manufacturer of both software and hardware for music production, backed by Francisco Partners since 2021. Prior to this, between 2018-2023, I was CFO of Study Group, a global leader in preparing students for international academic success. The business is backed by Ardian, following a tertiary buyout from Providence Equity Partners in 2019. I am also a Non-executive Director of Cambridge Scientific Innovations.

I am an experienced CFO of PE backed businesses, having completed five exit transactions with a total enterprise value of over £1bn. Before joining Study Group, I was CFO of JacTravel, a leading B2B hotel accommodation wholesaler and provider of inbound travel services. JacTravel was backed by Vitruvian Partners until the August 2017 sale to Webjet Limited of Australia.

Through my experience, I support PepTalks Members who are seeking to generate value, drive performance, and lead change.
