The MitchelLake Group Grows Its EMEA Practice

The MitchelLake Group is pleased to announce that Singapore Partner, Jamie Gripton, has recently relocated to Spain to further expand our practice in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

For the past 20 years, The MitchelLake Group has helped launch and transform some of the world’s leading ventures and brands. From partnering high-growth startups through international expansion to identifying transformational leaders for multinational firms such as PWC, EY, BCG DV, Westpac, Greensill, Singlife & Emirates, we have guided some of the world’s most progressive organisations through innovation and change on a global scale. 

Establishing a global footprint while remaining a specialist firm has played a major role in our success. Expanding across borders has allowed us to partner with growth ventures like Culture Amp, RedBubble, Deliveroo, Digitary, Fandom, Square, Dropbox and Optimizely in identifying first in market hires such as regional MD’s, Country Managers, VP, and director level roles across product, engineering, marketing, and customer acquisition.
