Connecting talent and VC and PE-backed companies for interim, fractional, and advisory leadership roles 

LONDON, U.K. – May 10, 2023TrueBridge, the premiere interim, fractional and advisory executive search firm, announced today it has launched in the United Kingdom with a network of highly-vetted, experienced senior executives ready to lead at venture capital and private equity-backed companies for high-impact engagements. 

Experienced interim executive recruiter Lydia Denham leads TrueBridge’s U.K. operations from London, reporting to CEO David Beuerlein in the U.S. Together, their backgrounds exemplify strengths of the TrueBridge offering. Rooted in technology, TrueBridge offers clients an intimate understanding of the talent needs of VC and PE companies. Mr. Beuerlein is an executive recruiting veteran: He founded Google’s executive recruiting team and led talent acquisition for VC firm Khosla Ventures. Ms. Denham led the interim division at the U.K. firm Capital Futures, which recruits for PE-backed SaaS companies.

“We’ve been in stealth mode in the UK since late 2022, focused on building and vetting our elite network of interim talent,” said Mr. Beuerlein. “We’re now going to market with these functional experts who are ready to fill interim positions of critical importance to investor-backed companies in the UK and wider Europe.” 

TrueBridge differentiates itself from existing interim services because of the strength of the senior executives in their network and the deep knowledge of the VC and PE ecosystems. As part of the True Platform, TrueBridge also benefits from close coordination with its global sister-companies, executive search firm True Search and the inclusive, executive hiring platform AboveBoard.

“We’ve fielded immense interest in our offerings across functions where our TrueBridge Network Europe members have expertise including the chief financial officer, chief HR officer, chief marketing officer and chief technology officer roles.” said Lydia Denham. “We look forward to serving the needs of our clients and candidates in the UK and beyond.”

It’s clear that TrueBridge’s focus on high-quality candidates resonates with potential clients and addresses a real market need for an interim executive search service tailored to the needs of investor-backed businesses. 

The launch of TrueBridge in the UK builds on the success in the U.S., where TrueBridge has made a lasting impact on the leadership teams of large companies like SeatGeek and Recharge. TrueBridge is uniquely positioned to fully assess a company’s short-term talent needs–and then solve those talent needs quickly and efficiently–making it a true value-add in the search process. Well-known investors including Bain Capital and Accel have cited TrueBridge as a much-needed talent partner, and more than 3,500 candidates have asked to join the company’s highly-vetted and select network of experienced executives.
