Managing Director & Owner - Castle Corporate Finance 

Stuart Stepney

Judge for The Castle Corporate Finance Scale-Up Business of the Year

Stuart is Managing Director and owner of Castle Corporate Finance, a business advising owner-managers and SME’s on a range of corporate finance matters, be it a retirement sale, private equity fund raise, or a corporate acquisition.  Stuart is an award winning adviser, having spent the majority of his 25 year career advising entrepreneurs and family businesses on corporate finance transactions and completing over 100 transactions in his career to date.

“I have always got a great buzz meeting ambitious management teams wanting to grow, or family shareholders seeking to crystallise their hard earned wealth in a retirement sale.  The space we focus on has plenty of colourful characters too and that for me adds to the fun of what we do.   We are really excited about being involved in the NBA awards and the chance to meet some great businesses seeking due recognition for their successes.”
