Sale Street is owned and led by John Williamson, Richard Jolly and Greg Batkin, who together have more than 75 years’ leadership and portfolio governance experience, and have completed more than 30 acquisitions and divestments with Australian and New Zealand private companies.
John, Richard and Greg are transformational business leaders with a demonstrated track record in leading value-accretive acquisitions and divestments, and driving organisational performance improvement including complex business turnarounds and growth strategies. We have worked extensively across multiple sectors and have built a number of industry verticals.

In our previous roles at former NZX-listed Hellaby Holdings, we have worked together for a long period of time and through this experience have developed a deep mutual trust and respect.
