QA

For the past 11 years William has been chief executive of QA, growing it from a value of £25 million in 2008 to more than £1 billion today. In 2017, Bregal sold QA to CVC, netting a 15x return on investment.

William started his career at Bain & Co from 1985 to 1990, before turning around The Financial Training Company from 1993 to 2000, leading its buyout from Wolters Kluwer with a subsequent sale to Kaplan in 2003, a more than 3x return for RBPE. From 2003-2007 he was responsible for all Kaplan’s businesses outside the US.
