Serial entrepreneur, William Sporborg has joined Bailey Fisher Executive Search in Cambridge, as an adviser to its Private Markets Practice.
The Founder of Cambridge Gateway Fund, an early stage venture capital business, Sporborg will be tasked with supporting growth of private companies across the Eastern region in his new role.
The qualified accountant has a strong career history behind him, working at the likes of PwC and Brent Walker PLS, and for the last 10 years, he has designed, raised and managed niche alternative tax efficient investments in bloodstock, horseracing, jewellery and fine wine – Business Weekly reports.
Private Markets is one of the three specialist sectors at Bailey Fisher, alongside Technology, and Life Sciences & Digital Health.
Sporborg comments on his new appointment: “Cambridge rightly attracts considerable international media coverage for its scientific and business excellence and this can deflect away from the extraordinary opportunities within more established businesses in the region.
“The blurring of lines between more traditional companies and so-called technology companies will create greater need for additional people resources at a senior level, and I believe that the strength of the brand, the broad range of experiences and the trust and ability to deliver will enable Bailey Fisher to become an increasing presence in the search market.”
