About John Chapman

John is a chartered accountant having trained with EY. He worked in senior positions in a number of financial services businesses, including the Finance Director of a Japanese-owned private equity firm, prior to becoming Managing Director of Torquil Clark, the national IFA business, in 2003.

John led the business through an organic and acquisition growth strategy resulting in the acquisition of four businesses in eighteen months and the ultimate sale of the business in 2008 to Skipton Building Society. The sale to Skipton resulted in a trebling of shareholder value in the five years he managed the business.

Following the sale to Skipton, John remained with the organisation and guided the continued growth of the business. Following the international financial crisis, Skipton’s strategy changed and a decision was made to dispose of Torquil Clark. The stake was acquired by the national consolidator, Bellpenny. John stayed with the organisation until the end of 2015 when he left to set up the consulting business which would eventually become Orion Consulting Group.

John’s background in running a diverse IFA group and buying and selling businesses within the sector gives him a unique insight into M&A strategy, integration and developing businesses of value.
