Greenhouse expands

Greenhouse Ventures, the corporate venturing consultancy, has expanded its London-based team with the appointments of Alastair Birt and Dean Hyland as associate directors.

Birt joins from Accenture where he was a manager and spent eight years advising clients including NEC, BAT, BP, Nestle and United Biscuits.

Hyland was previously at Fiorelli Brands International, where he was director of national sales and marketing, and expanded the company throughout Australasia.

The new hires strengthen the team of 10, headed by executive directors Michael O’Leary-Collins and Sally Barber.
