Meet our team

Ryan Cleland-Bogle

  • CEO & Founder

I graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2000.

In 2002, I co-founded Carrington Fox, a financial markets recruiter. We got lucky with the market and refined the operating model enabling us to grow to 100 fee earners across London, New York, Hong Kong and Singapore across four brands by the time I was 27. We exited in 2012.

In 2009 I founded Lucas Love Healthcare, a private sector nursing agency in Ireland. LLHC sold to Bettercare Capital in 2016.

In 2014 I became CEO of Recruitment Entrepreneur. We scaled the business to 130 people in just 2.5 years and I originated, structured and transacted on their most successful investments. I left to set up Tempting Ventures.

Tempting Ventures made our first investment in late 2017. We now have 7 brands in STEM and Professional Services with offices in London, Stoke, New York, Indianapolis, Palm Beach Gardens and Miami.

70% of our Net Fee Income is in the US. In 2022 our brands achieved over $40m+ sales, $20m+ Net Fee Income and $4m+ EBITDA
