Incisive Media acquired by senior management
The Founder and leadership team of Incisive Media have secured a Management Buy Out (MBO) of the company.
The partners - Founder and Chairman Tim Weller, CFO Jamie Campbell-Harris, and CEO Jonathon Whiteley - have worked together in the business for two decades, and said the move allows Incisive to accelerate its growth strategy under long-term private ownership.
They said the company will have the flexibility to focus on investing in both its existing market leading products and services, and to take advantage of further opportunities for growth either organically or through acquisition.
“This is a fantastic outcome for the business and staff after a number of years of private equity and bank ownership,” said Weller. He added: "We have great people and brands, I am excited about what lies ahead.”
Jonathon Whiteley, CEO, said: “We are really excited about the future and opportunity ahead. This structure allows the management team to focus on the long term and the continued development and investment in our award-winning people and products for the benefit of both our audiences and clients.”
Incisive Media was founded in 1994 by Tim Weller, through the launch of Investment Week. It serves professionals in the financial and technology industries from offices in London and New York.
