The venture capital firm Greycroft Partners announced on Monday the addition of three senior executives.
The firm has hired Paul Bricault, a former executive vice president of the William Morris Agency, and an entrepreneur, Kirill Sheynkman, as venture partners. Alan Gould, a former co-chief executive of IAG Research, has also joined as an executive in residence.
“With these additions, the firm seeks to expand its technical, marketing, and investment capacity, identify new opportunities, and provide extra resources to its portfolio companies,” Greycroft’s founder and managing director, Alan Patricof, said in a statement.
Greycroft, which is based in New York and has made investments in several Internet companies including The Huffington Post and GlamMedia, also announced the promotion of Marissa Campise to principal. Prior to joining Greycroft last year, Ms. Campise was an associate at Lindzon Capital Partners, where she analyzed technology investment opportunities.
Greycroft’s expansion comes as several American venture capital firms have hired new employees and raised new funds. In the first quarter, venture capital firms raised more than $7.09 billion, the best annual start since 2001, according toThomson Reuters and the National Venture Capital Association.
