Great Hill Partners, a private equity firm that targets investments of $100 million to $500 million in high-growth companies across the software, digital commerce, financial technology, healthcare, and digital infrastructure sectors, has opened a London office to support its investment activity in the UK and Europe.
The London office will serve as Great Hill’s regional hub for the UK and Europe, providing the firm with a dedicated local presence, greater access to investment opportunities, and resources for portfolio companies. Longtime Great Hill Managing Director Drew Loucks will lead the new office and grow the London team.
Great Hill has added two new recruits to its London team – Mats Heimes as a VP, and Erik Kreukniet as an associate.
Heimes, who will focus on software and digital infrastructure investments, joins from Summit Partners, another Boston-based private equity firm, where he was part of the technology team, having previously worked with the & A team at Goldman Sachs.
Erik Kreukniet, has joined from Macquarie Group, where he was also an associate, with the private equity team. He has relocated from the Netherlands to join Great Hill.
