Third Bridge was founded on the belief that human insights drive intelligent investment decisions.
To make the right investment decisions, our clients require access to the most relevant experts and their insights – we enable this through private consultations and exclusive content drawn from expert interviews.
Our clients consist of some of the largest private equity funds, hedge funds, mutual funds and management consulting firms, who are serviced by a team of over 900 employees located across eight global offices.
Third Bridge operates in a global, multi-billion-dollar market with double-digit annual growth and has consistently received accolades for Great Places to Work and the top 100 fastest growing companies.
The Account Management team manages defined books of existing client business across Third Bridge’s Connections and Forum product offerings, and is responsible for retention and growth within these accounts, creating revenue opportunities and cross-selling additional products. The team is expected to diligently manage a pipeline of renewal and cross-sell opportunities, while always seeking to drive timely deal execution and excellent commercial outcomes.
