Simon Hitchcock, Managing Partner – Horizon Capital
"Horizon Private Equity has a portfolio of 14 companies today and we are an active investor, making two to three new ones each year. We generally need to hire around 10 board level positions each year for the new deals and to strengthen existing teams, as the companies we invest in are high growth.
Mallory Partners understands our business model through the full investment lifecycle very well and they have a good success rate of introducing high quality and relevant candidates to us. It’s a very easy commercial relationship; they have invested time in understanding our business and the types of individuals who work well with us - those who align with our approach and ethos and who have relevant experience.
In addition to working for our portfolio companies, Mallory often invests time in working with us pre-deal on a more speculative basis, to help identify the right management solution to unlock a transaction. This really cements our relationship."
