Meet Our Team

Sam Smith

Founder and Managing Director

Sam founded Marble Hill Partners in 2008, taking the plunge and ‘backing himself’ after a successful career at a boutique executive search and interim management consultancy.

Having immersed himself in the world of private equity, he has developed a true understanding of the investment cycle, where the pressure points arise and how to shape a management team to overcome them.

He has built an extensive network amongst key industry players – investors, CEOs, Chairmen and management teams – and a strong track record of delivery within both interim management and executive search.

Sam takes a hands on role leading the Marble Hill team. He is involved in all aspects of client delivery, manages client and partner relationships and works to add value to all stakeholders through research, events and new initiatives.

Outside work, Sam enjoys being dad to his three children, and has a keen interest in sport, both as a player – tennis, cycling – and a spectator – he’s a fan of Chelsea, and supports his children at grass roots level.
