Offices on Madison Avenue

We’re delighted to announce that we have opened an ECI office in New York. Our US presence will support the international growth of our investment portfolio. As part of this expansion, we have appointed Brett Pentz as Vice President in the Commercial Team, to lead our Madison Avenue office. 

Brett brings over a decade of hands-on experience leading and executing corporate growth strategies in the US. Brett has worked across a range of sectors, particularly in tech and business services. Prior to joining ECI New York, he held consulting roles at Bain and Teneo. Brett started his career in industry, at leading health software vendor Epic.

The US market is the single most important international market for ECI’s portfolio. Over a third of current ECI investments already have a US presence. Furthermore, more than half plan to accelerate growth there. In his new role, Brett will support our portfolio companies with sourcing and executing M&A opportunities. This includes helping to execute organic entry and growth strategies.

“Despite the pandemic, 2020 was a very strong year for ECI. It’s great to build on this momentum by launching our New York office and appointing Brett to our Commercial Team. The successful 2020 realisations of Mthree to Wiley, the sale and reinvestment into ATG with TA Associates and the sale of MPM to 3i, all of which had strong US growth, underscores the importance of the US market to the companies we back.”

“Brett brings many years of experience working with leading companies across North America. By having him on the ground, we are confident that we will be able to support our investments even further as they expand and grow in North America.”
