Tim Buss

CFO, The Travel Chapter


I am the CFO of The Travel Chapter, a leading platform for high-quality holiday rentals, which offers over 15,000 properties across the UK and Ireland. I joined The Travel Chapter in 2018 when it was backed by Phoenix Equity Partners, and helped to successfully scale the business via a combination of organic growth and M&A. We completed a secondary buyout with ECI in late 2018, with a further transaction in 2022 backed by ICG. Following this investment, we went on to acquire Original Cottages, making us one of the largest providers of holiday rentals in the UK.

Prior to that I spent over 10 years with PwC, most recently as a Director in the M&A team in London working with a variety of Private Equity funds and management teams with a particular focus on the consumer and leisure sector.

Having worked with several different PE funds, I look forward to sharing my experience of being a PE-backed CFO with other Executives in the community and offering insight into how to successfully navigate the private equity journey.
