Albany is a boutique search firm that exclusively moves senior technology leaders to VC backed and Private Equity owned organisations within the technology landscape.


We are privately owned and have been founded on the principle that only deep domain market knowledge, gained from operating within one space over many years, enables you to provide true advisory services around board composition.


We exist exclusively within the European investor led technology market, providing us with an extensive network amongst leading European tech funds, the companies they invest in, and the technology leaders that they build their propositions around.

Venture Capital

Albany Partners works alongside some of Europe’s leading VC funds that invest in innovative technology start ups at the Seed and Series A stage of investment. Albany proactively works within a network of entrepreneurial start up executives, that can build highly scalable technology propositions, to deliver rapid growth and the eventual exit required.

Private Equity

We work with mid-market private equity funds that invest growth capital into more established technology organisations that have displayed consistent EBITDA and revenue growth. These organisations require seasoned technology leaders that have a proven track record in developing and maintaining their organisation’s technological advantage.


By virtue of working specifically with VC and PE portfolio companies we support clients within high growth and cutting edge technology markets. Ranging from Consumer, Digital Media, B2B SaaS, Fin / Med / Health Tech, through to emerging Telecoms businesses. We specialise in providing technology leaders with proven experience in your relevant technology area.


Albany consists of a team of highly experienced individuals with a proven track record of operating within, and making introductions to, the Private Equity and Venture Capital technology markets.

All our consultants have a credibilty based upon having a deep domain knowledge enabling them to provide informed advice on up to date trends and market dynamics, whether you are a client seeking to grow your team, or a technology excutive looking to pursue a new opportunity.


We are always looking for like minded and highly motivated individuals with proven experience in relevant markets to join our team.

We are building a special company, within an industry that often has a negative reputation because it is represented by consultants that do not understand their markets and therefore offer their clients little value. This is their mistake and our opportunity. We are not a typical search business, we are an advisory practice. Working with us, you will be trained, coached and mentored within your specialism and together we will continue to grow a brand our clients trust and rely upon.
