July 7, 2015 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pmFree
One of the Founding Partners of The Shilling Group
Serial Entrepreneur & Innovator
As part of the Visiting Expert Session programme, Jof Walters will be holding a round table discussion to connect, share experience and expertise with start-up businesses based at Innovation Birmingham. Jof will then be holding 1-2-1 sessions for those who would like to have a more focused discussion.
Jof Walters is an expert in the acquisition of businesses having bought or sold over fifty companies in the past decade. His own business, The Shilling Group, worked with clients ranging from small local investors to large international entities and government departments. During this time Jof also owned and exited shares in a multi-national software company, a commercial banking provider, a recycler, a packaging group, a precision engineer and a company that made body bags and incontinence pants.
Prior to his life as an acquirer Jof spent a number of years as an innovator in the retail banking sector. He was part of the team at Egg (the first UK online bank) and had an instrumental role in a number of ‘firsts’ during the dot-com boom, including the first online credit card in the UK, the launch of UK account aggregation, peer to peer payments, chip cards, pre-paid cards and a myriad of ‘behind the scenes’ technology advances. In 2008 Jof Walters chaired the digital money forum.
Currently Jof is taking a brief sabbatical after exiting the Shilling Group. He is rather enjoying spending time with his three daughters and providing advice on projects across a range of industries.
