Pantheon makes senior strategic appointments

Private markets investment firm Pantheon has made two senior appointments: John Eggleston joins as Partner and Chief Technology Officer, while Richard Berke joins as Global Head of Recruitment, a new position.

The appointments demonstrate the priority and vigilance that Pantheon places on attracting strong talent to lead and innovate important functions. Pantheon has recruited over 125 new permanent professionals across its global teams through 2018 and 2019 to date, evidence of the need for a seasoned recruitment specialist to oversee and implement a best-in-class resourcing infrastructure.
Eggleston, whose impressive technology career stretches back to 1996, joins from BGF plc, a GBP2.5 billion investment company where he was a member of the Executive & Investment Committees. John led the TMT investment group as well as being a non-exec Director on several Boards and providing strategic CTO support to many companies in the portfolio. Prior to BGF, Eggleston was co-founding Chief Information Officer at Callcredit, which grew from initial concept to acquisition by TransUnion for over USD1 billion. At Pantheon, Eggleston has oversight responsibility for core technology infrastructure, information security and systems development.
Berke brings nearly two decades of financial services recruitment experience with him, most recently from Insight Investment where Berke was Head of Resourcing. Earlier this year, Pantheon appointed Charlotte Tallon as Head of HR for the Americas. Charlotte joined from Barclays where she was HR Business Partner, and she is based in Pantheon’s New York office.
“We are delighted to have such highly talented professionals join us in strategically important positions,” says Paul Ward, Managing Partner. “Our operating model continues to experience fast change – we carry a responsibility to be both alert and responsive to that challenge. Technology and people are two vital elements on which the security and success of the whole firm depends. Accordingly, Pantheon’s Board prioritises and invests in ensuring Pantheon is resourced appropriately in terms of seniority, skill and experience.”
John Eggleston reports to Robin Bailey, Chief Operating Officer. Richard Berke reports to Dianne Remanous, Global Head of HR. Both are based in Pantheon’s London office.
