The combination will add five senior dealmakers to GP Bullhound’s global team.
Greg Smith, Managing Partner of AdMedia, commented: “GP Bullhound has led many of the best known technology companies to successful and rapid growth and we are thrilled to be joining the team on its journey. The combination will allow our clients to benefit from the global scale of GP Bullhound and we look forward to deepening its reach in New York and the US.”

The two firms are a natural fit, sharing a passion for working with entrepreneurial category leaders. We have exciting plans in store and AdMedia’s reputation and trusted network in New York will be a great asset for our firm.”
This acquisition marks an ambitious move for GP Bullhound into the East Coast US market, complementing existing offices in London, San Francisco, Stockholm, Berlin, Manchester, Paris and most recently Madrid and Hong Kong, opened in 2017.
