Gresham appoints

Having recently backed the £20.75m management buyout of celebrity, music and sports agent Formation Group, mid-market private equity firm Gresham Private Equity has hired Anthony Bull as partner in its investment team.

Bull joins from Tokyo-based Mitsui Private Equity where he was principal. Prior to Mitsui, he spent 10 years at 3i and LDC.

Bull is Gresham’s first hire in 2009. The London-based private equity firm’s last recruit was Dan Hatcher who, like Bull, was made partner in the firm’s investment team.
