The MBO was led by (from left) founder and chairman Tim Weller, CEO Jonathon Whiteley and CFO Jamie Campbell- Harris.

The move allows Incisive to operate as a fully independent private company, giving it the flexibility to focus on investing in both its existing products and services and to take advantage of further opportunities for growth, says the company.

The MBO was led by founder and chairman Tim Weller, CFO Jamie Campbell- Harris, and CEO Jonathon Whiteley, who have worked together in the business for the past two decades.

“This is a fantastic outcome for the business and staff after a number of years of private equity and bank ownership,” commented founder and chairman Tim Weller.

“As an independent company, we now have the flexibility to advance our business and take full advantage of the significant opportunities that lie ahead. We have great people and brands I am excited about what lies ahead.”

CEO Jonathon Whiteley added: “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 is a digital information and events business. It was founded in 1994 by Tim Weller when he launched the Investment Week brand.

Incisive Media was voted the AOP Digital Publisher of the Year 2010, 2013 and 2016 and is shortlisted as Media Company of the Year in the upcoming British Media Awards 2017. The business has offices in London and New York.

Incisive Media's portfolio of B2B information brands services the asset management, wealth management, institutional pensions, IT channel and enterprise technology sectors.
