Private equity firm Carrick Capital Partners has held the final close of its first fund at USD180m.

The fund will invest in companies that focus on technology-enabled service offerings, business process outsourcing, transaction processing, software as a service and enterprise software.

Carrick Capital Partners was co-founded by Marc McMorris, a former General Atlantic managing director who led investments in business services and software, and Jim Madden, the previous founder and chief executive of Exult, a human resources business processing company that he grew from concept to more than USD500m in revenues.

Carrick takes an operational approach to growth equity investing, bringing to bear a distinctive combination of operational and investment expertise to help entrepreneurs and management successfully scale their businesses.
