Greatmaker was founded in 2020 by John Oldfield with support from Stu Barr and mentorship from Richard Cutfield. Between the founding group we have: 30+ years of direct capital investment experience; and 30+ years of directly relevant operating experience.
John Oldfield has lead responsibility for sourcing, making and supporting investments as well as administration. Stu Barr is an investment committee member and is available as a consultant to investee companies. Richard Cutfield leads the investment committee, supports investment activity and mentors the operating partners.
We are backed by a small and growing group of high net worth and family office investors. Each of the founding group members actively invest alongside our financial backers.
