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.
