Guy Hughes is an American investor, venture capitalist, and former academic. Born to a middle class family, Hughes studied as a historian of technology and science before making the jump to an investment firm shortly after the completion of his PhD. In the aftermath of the dot-com bubble, Hughes and several partners established Mercury Venture Group with the intention of investing in the next generation of internet start-ups. Originally a senior executive, Hughes became CEO of MVG in 2008 in the aftermath of the housing and banking crises and navigated, by 2010, the company back to solid ground. Hughes then orchestrated a strategy of transitioning MVG into a firm that focused primarily in traditional and digital media, entertainment, and leisure, with smaller roles in agriculture and pharmaceutical, but stepped back from day to day management in 2015. In mid-2021, following three years of declining profits and lack of innovation, Hughes organized and executed an internal removal of previous ownership and a buy-out of many of his former partners - since then, he has acted as both CEO and President and is preparing for the new phase in MVG's story.
