Wayne Story

Chair, GatenbySanderson


I am currently Chair at GatenbySanderson, the UK’s leading public sector search and selection group, which is backed by Primary Capital. Prior to this, for 7 years I was CEO of Civica Group, a leader in software for public services and led a secondary buyout of the Group in 2017, which saw Partners Group acquire the business from OMERS, at a valuation exceeding £1 billion. During my time there, I drove our strong performance and unbroken growth, both organically and through M&A. As CEO, I was passionate about our exceptional people and culture and led our diversity and inclusion efforts.

Before joining Civica in 2015, I was a NED and interim CEO at Equatex, a global leading Share Plan business based in Switzerland, a portfolio company backed by Montagu PE. Prior to this, I was Group CEO for the technology-led business services and payments group Equiniti, which was backed by Advent International.

I will be using this experience to advise PepTalks members throughout their PE journeys.
