Meet Our Team

James Boot

Managing Director

James is Managing Director of Marble Hill Partners, having recently acquired the business from the original founders in 2021. He brings together over 15 years of Executive Search, Talent Management, and Private Equity advisory experience, during which he has built an extensive network with Private Equity Investors, CEOs, Chairs, NEDs and management teams, allowing him to provide well-rounded support to his clients and candidates.

Having immersed himself in the world of private equity since 2012, he has developed a true understanding of the investment cycle, where the pressure points arise and how to shape a management team to pre-empt and overcome them.

James takes a hands-on role leading the Marble Hill team. He is involved in all aspects of the business, from client acquisition, search delivery, managing client and partner relationships and adding additional value to all stakeholders through deal research, sector insights, events and new initiatives.

Outside work, James enjoys being a dad to his two children and has a keen interest in rugby, skiing and DIY (when time permits).
