Carrick Passes Goal for its 1st Equity Fund


Senior Reporter Mark Calvey interviewed Marc McMorris for an article on the new fund and the current fundraising climate. “Carrick Capital Partners, a new San Francisco private equity firm, raised its first fund, exceeding its fundraising goal and timeline in a difficult environment to raise money. The firm, which spent much of the year raising the capital, pulled in $180 million, well above its target of $150 million. The co-founders are Marc McMorris, a former General Atlantic managing director focused on business services and software, and Jim Madden, founder and CEO of Exult Inc., a human resources outsourcing company that he grew from startup to $500 million in annual revenue. McMorris said the firm will focus on what the industry calls ‘growth equity capital,’ which invests in fast-growing companies with little reliance on debt to make the deal happen.”
