James Caan

CEO, HB

James is one of the UK’s most successful and dynamic entrepreneurs. His business ethos is defined by the concept of partnership, collaboration and investing in people with passion.

His career started in the recruitment industry, which included the global success of his companies, Alexander Mann Group and Humana International. He has been building businesses and investing ever since.

In 2004 he founded private equity firm Hamilton Bradshaw based in London’s Mayfair, which specialises in buyouts, venture capital, real estate and now manages a portfolio of over 40 companies turning over £500m.

James’ passion remains in building successful businesses and investing in people rather than just their ideas. He has always demonstrated an innate ability to spot talent, and subsequently takes great pleasure in seeing those he invests in, grow and achieve their ambitions.

He continues to lead our business and his media profile speaks for itself.
