Bradley Placks


​Chairman of Camino Partners, Brad is a passionate advocate for developing positive working environments that lead to thriving businesses, and is a well-known figure in recruitment.

After 25 years of successfully setting up, scaling, and selling businesses in recruitment and technology, Brad is married and a father to two head-strong kids – a 20-year old Economics student and a 17-year old singer / songwriter. Brad is a devoted (and frustrated) Arsenal fan and an even more frustrated golfer.

Having successfully started and exited businesses, undertaken mergers and advised on multiple MBOs, Brad set up his first IT recruitment business in 1999, followed by a telecoms and medical recruitment business. He co-founded market-leading technology business, Broadbean, later sold to a global media organisation, and is an investor in a corporate finance business.

Brad is a relatable, authentic, and compassionate guy who’s been in your shoes as both business owner and leader. His personal interest in mental health and qualification in counselling and therapy is a critical tool he uses to bring the best out of teams and to unleash the potential of business.

Brad loves to help clients build a business that is reflective of modern culture. He works with owners and their senior leadership teams to help them be the best version of themselves in order to create the very best version of their business. Ultimately the work Brad does is to create more choice, for you and your business, whilst always focusing on increasing shareholder value.
