Joe Thornton - Partner

Focus Areas:

Joe started out life as a technical recruiter and a decade later finds himself as a partner at Playfair. He focuses on fund administration, supporting and growing his junior colleagues, leading new investments, and helping our growing portfolio of founders to build high performance startup teams.

His life's goal is to find better ways to identify, engage and support exceptional talent. As such, the future of work is a core investment focus of his.

When not working, you’ll find Joe chasing squirrels in Epping Forest with his French Bulldog Scotch, representing Hackney Chess Club in the London Chess League, or incessantly debating Jeevan on a range of issues, mostly just to annoy her.
