Erevena is delighted to announce the promotion of James Ryan to the position of Partner. James leads our CTO Practice in Europe and has played a key role in growing our expertise in Engineering, Data Science and Technical Product leadership.

James works closely with Sam Wilkins who leads our Global CTO Practice from San Francisco. Over the past three and half years they have developed the team to support partners across all asset classes (Venture, Private Equity, Public) and sectors (such as Deep Tech, Consumer, FinTech, HealthTech and SaaS).

“The last few years have seen the CTO practice grow significantly through continually raising the bar around the advice we can offer and network of technical leaders we can access, and I’m delighted to see James promoted. 2020 has certainly tested our assumptions and forced innovation in our own practices, and we look forward to what the next period of growth brings.”

Sam Wilkins, Senior Partner, Erevena

In Europe we have recently supported established and scaling brands such as Snyk, Nutmeg, LoveHolidays, MatchesFashion, eBay, Shpock, Kobalt Music and SoundCloud; as well as early stage businesses such as CloudNC, Sqreen, SenSat, Hazy and Hadean. Whilst in Private Equity we have had the pleasure of working with funds such as Inflexion, Vitruvian, Livingbridge, Dunedin, Bowmark and Apax and the truly exciting businesses in their respective portfolios.

“I’m delighted to welcome James to the Partner group, his promotion is testament to his contribution to the growing reputation that Erevena has in the market for Technology leadership roles, expanding on our strengths in SaaS, CFO, Consumer, DeepTech and Financial Services.”
