We’re delighted to announce today that we have opened an office in New York to 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 newly opened office on Madison Avenue.
Brett brings more than a decade of hands-on experience leading and executing growth strategies for corporates in the US across a range of sectors, particularly in tech and business services. Prior to joining ECI, he held consulting roles at Bain and Teneo, having 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 presence in the US, and more than half plan to accelerate growth there. In his new role, Brett will be tasked with supporting portfolio companies with sourcing and executing M&A opportunities, as well as helping to execute organic entry and growth strategies.
