Stuart Stepney

Managing Director

After a twenty year career at global accountancy firm, Grant Thornton, Stuart made the leap to owner-manager and joined Castle in 2013, originally as head of M&A and now Managing Director and owner. Since then, Stuart has been instrumental in developing the team, broadening the depth and breadth of Castle’s service offering and driving through a three year growth programme, including full re-brand. During his career to date, Stuart has led over 100 deals and had the honour to have been awarded a number of personal accolades for his work, most recently – UK Corporate Financier of the Year (ACQ Global Awards). Stuart is known for his friendly but highly commercial approach to deals and relentless drive to see a transaction to a successful conclusion.

“I am in the privileged position of being able to spend my typical day surrounded by a talented team of individuals, working with dynamic and colourful characters on some highly interesting and meaningful projects”

He hears there’s more to life than corporate Finance…

Not known for his ability to sit still for long, Stuart can be found working his way through his book pile at home, achieving some headspace time on his trail runs around the countryside near his Sussex home or spending time socialising with family and friends, preferably in a pub with good food and drink.
