THA has announced it has secured investment from London-based private equity firm, SEA Equity to back the ambitious international growth plans of THA’s management team, led by founder Tom Hopkinson. The company is a leading provider of contractors, senior staff and executives to global renewable and clean energy companies with offices in Glasgow, London, Madrid, Houston and Mexico City.

SEA Equity is a private investment firm focused on backing small and medium sized companies across the UK and Europe. SEA Equity applies an entrepreneurial mindset and quick decision making to deploy flexible capital to fund a variety of transaction types. THA is SEA Equity’s fourth investment, and the first from its recently raised £50 million fund.

Tom Hopkinson will continue as THA CEO, supported by a strong senior management team including Jeff Anderson, Fiona McRae and Donna Ellcock. Stewart Cantley, former CEO of Swift Worldwide Resources, a large global provider of staffing solutions to the energy sector, will join THA’s board as Chairman and Mike Bell will also join as CFO.

“I am excited to partner and work with SEA Equity” said Tom Hopkinson. “Their investment enables us to capitalise on the opportunities ahead and to consolidate our leading market position in renewable and clean energy recruitment. SEA Equity’s support and Stewart Cantley’s experience with rapid international expansion will help us unlock enormous potential.”

THA was advised by a corporate finance team led by Carl Swansbury from Ryecroft Glenton LLP and a legal team led by Kevin Devanny from Pinsent Masons LLP.

SEA Equity was advised by a legal team led by Jon Gill from TLT LLP, a financial diligence team led by Rebecca Guerin of RSM and a commercial diligence team led by Robin Illingworth of Drystone Strategy.
