Barracuda Group Establishes Private Equity Division
Executive search firm Barracuda Group has established a private equity division.
Anthony Bull, who established and will lead the division Barracuda Private Equity, has over 16 years’ experience as a private equity investor with 3i, LDC, Mitsui & Co and latterly with Gresham Private Equity, where he sat on the investment committee and was co-head of the London investment team.
Barracuda Joint Managing Directors Jamie Zuppinger and Justin Linger commented: “We are delighted to have engaged Anthony. He has a reputation as one of the best deal originators in the private equity industry and a proven ability to attract management talent to his deals and importantly, from a private equity viewpoint, he knows what ‘good looks like’ in a PE management context having invested in and sat on boards of numerous companies and understands the pressure points in private equity houses.
“We believe that with Anthony’s appointment, we have a unique offering for the private equity industry which can bridge the traditional relationship and understanding gap between recruiters and PE firms.”
They added: “With Anthony establishing Barracuda Private Equity and working alongside our other divisions, we believe that we have once more strengthened and consolidated our position as the largest and most experienced fully integrated consumer facing practice of any search organisation based in the UK, if not globally.”
