Threadmark, the European placement agent and advisory firm, has hired Arnab Bhattasali as a vice president in its London office to help market and source private equity, infrastructure and real estate funds in Europe and the Middle East.
The spinout from Eaton Partners said Bhattasali joined from Goldman Sachs in London, where he was a vice president in the Wall Street bank’s alternative capital-raising team. There, he focused on all aspects of fundraising for Goldman Sachs' in-house and third-party private equity funds.
Separately, Threadmark also announced the promotion of Paul Murphy to vice president. He joined the firm in 2010 after working with Invista Real Estate Investment Management for six years.
Threadmark, which currently is working on mandates seeking a total of more than $5 billion, was established in 2009 by Bruce Chapman, who had focused on private equity and infrastructure fundraising at CP Eaton, and Anne Gales, who had specialised in real estate and hedge fund mandates. The duo left CP Eaton in August 2009 as the firm was restructuring its European and Asian businesses. Chapman and Gales were both partners in the business and had been with the firm since 2005 and 2003, respectively. Before that, they previously worked together placing funds at corporate finance boutique Continental Capital Partners.
