River Capital recruits Artificial Intelligence specialist


Martin Sutton, the former Chief Revenue Officer and Commercial Director at Peak, has moved to River Capital.

He takes on the role of Venture Partner, working across its recently launched Artificial Intelligence fund – the first of its kind in the North

“This is a dream role for me at River Capital as I’m passionate about helping early-stage AI and data focussed businesses to achieve their full potential,” he said.

“Coupled with the fact that fund: AI has a laser focus on Northern businesses made this a no brainer for me, as I’ve always believed we have amazing tech firms in the North but they are sometimes overlooked and underserved compared to their London peers.”

Before joining Peak in 2016, he held senior roles at Dell EMC, Hitachi and Fujitsu.

“We are thrilled to welcome Martin to the River Capital team in a Venture Partner capacity following the recent launch of fund: AI, hot on the heels of our recent rebranding and subsequent launch of the Business Growth Loan Fund,” added River Capital CEO Mark Borzomato.

“Martin brings extensive knowledge of the AI landscape within the North, and his knowledge of the region’s ecosystem and extensive contacts will ensure we maximise the fund’s full potential.

“The AI Machine, Learning and Data Science industry presents fantastic investment opportunities, and securing Martin’s services is a real coup as we look to capitalise upon this.”

Sutton’s role will be to work with the fund’s leadership team in enabling early-stage, data focussed businesses to achieve their full potential.
