In 1981 Irby acquired Wigham Poland, a Lloyds Broker/Underwriter in London for Transamerica, and moved to the UK to become its Chairman. After merging this business in 1985 with a dominant UK broker, Sedgwick, Plc., Irby became Deputy Chairman of Sedgwick forming the largest international insurance broker, a post he held until 1988 when he left to become a founding partner of the London-based investment banking boutique Hambro Magan Irby. During its eight years of independence, it became one of the most successful M&A boutiques in Europe, advising on over $50 billion of transactions.

He subsequently sold Hawkpoint to Collins Stewart PLC in 2003. Following that sale, he founded Tricorn Partners, another highly successful M&A boutique and focused advisory firm.
