Rory Brown

Chair, Realfin


I am currently Non-Executive Chair at Realfin, a data platform utilising technology and intelligence to deliver insights for the real estate market.

I was Co-Founder and CEO of AgriBriefing, a market-leading agricultural price reporting agency that provides businesses with benchmark prices, market data, supply & demand forecasts and events. We initially launched as Briefing Media in 2010, concentrating on media strategy and the management buy-in of some trade publications from UBM, before focusing on the agriculture and food markets.

We successfully scaled the business through a combination of organic growth and targeted M&A. This allowed us to secure three rounds of private equity investment, before selling the business to Five Arrow’s/Synova-backed food price specialist Mintec in 2023, realising a successful exit for Horizon Capital and Ares Management.

I’m looking forward to supporting PepTalks members with:

  • Successfully scaling an entrepreneurial business 
  • Transitioning to a subscription business model
  • Uncovering off-market international M&A opportunities
  • Preparing for a secondary buyout or trade sale
