McLean Partnership hires head of private equity team

Executive recruitment firm The McLean Partnership has hired Edward King as a partner to develop its private equity franchise.

King joins from executives in Africa’s London office where he has forged strong links with private equity organisations looking to grow their business interests in the region.
He has worked extensively with portfolio companies across a wide range of sectors. Most recently, he has been responsible for C-suite hires in Ethiopia and West Africa in banking, insurance, pensions, real estate, FMCG and agri-business. King will build on The McLean Partnership’s private equity offering, working with clients in the UK and in emerging markets.
Prior to this, King worked with a number of high profile search firms where he focused on director and managing director level roles across investment banking, advisory and private equity in the UK, Europe and emerging markets, including South Africa, sub-Saharan Africa.
Paul Soothill, McLean Partnership managing director, says: “Edward’s extensive experience of senior level recruitment in Africa and broader emerging markets will allow us to continue to extend our international executive recruitment offering through our McLean Partnership brand. His knowledge of private equity will also further strengthen our interim management practice which places short-term executive leaders in portfolio companies to facilitate change and manage transition.”
King adds: “I am excited to be playing a pivotal role in the development of The McLean Partnership as it continues to expand its industry capabilities across the UK and international markets.”
