On Wednesday 7 November, Saffery Champness and Barclays Bank welcome Steve Rawlinson, Chairman of Oakhouse Foods Limited to an event at top Peterborough restaurant, Prévost.

For most business owners, the decision to sell their business is very emotive. For others, it is less so, because the decision is the culmination a long-term exit strategy that they have been working towards in order to realise the wealth that has been built up in their asset to either fund retirement or embark on a new venture.

Steve recently sold his business to Kerry Foods and is going to share his experiences about the history of the company, shareholder tensions, readying the business for sale, the sale and what life after the transaction looks like.

The event will be a private dinner attended by the owners of business from across the East of England. It will be chaired by Alistair Hunt, a partner at Saffery Champness.

Commenting, Alistair said, “It is a rare opportunity for business owners who are considering their exit options to hear the first-hand experience of an owner who has sold their business and to ask questions under a Chatham house rules in relaxed surroundings over a private dinner.”

Alistair is an experienced business adviser. He has advised clients through the different cycles of business from set up to growth, stability and exit.
