Robert Hull to join Providence as chief financial officer

Providence Equity Partners, a private equity investment firm specialising in media, entertainment, communications and information companies, has appointed Robert S. Hull as chief financial officer.

Hull will begin the role in early April and will be based in the firm’s Providence office.

He succeeds Raymond Mathieu, who will become a managing director focused on special projects for the firm.

Hull will join Providence from GMAC where he has served as executive vice president and chief financial officer since 2007. He was a member of GMAC’s executive committee and served briefly on GMAC’s board of directors.

Previously he held a series of finance positions at Bank of America from 2001 to 2007, most recently as chief financial officer of the company’s global wealth and investment management business.

“We are delighted to welcome Rob Hull to Providence,” says Jonathan Nelson, chief executive officer of Providence. “Rob brings an exceptional track record of serving as chief financial officer at large and complex financial institutions, as well as public and private companies in a variety of industries. His experience and expertise will be invaluable as we continue to grow Providence in the years ahead. Ray has helped lead Providence and played an important role in supporting the investment activities through more than two decades of growth. We appreciate all his contributions, and we are pleased that he will remain at Providence in a new capacity.”
