Private Equity

Maximizing your investment has a lot to do with having the right people in place to reach your goals—the value of a business increases when you have professional leaders in critical positions and the succession-related questions planned and outlined.

Private Equity Groups (PEGs) have trusted us with their search needs because we understand the importance of evaluating and eliminating as much risk as possible while creating the best ROI – in the areas of people and leadership.

Our PE experience has steadily increased as we successfully complete one engagement after another. We recognize that PEGs may have various strategies: whether it’s to buy and hold, buy and bolt-on, increase enterprise value and sell, or acquire to merge and integrate…. we understand these scenarios and have supported clients with their hiring needs to help them achieve the desired end goal.

We have experience working with a variety of PE entities.

  • Large holding companies with structured investment groups and portfolio companies
  • International-based PEGs who acquire and run a portfolio of US based operating companies
  • US-based team acquiring small to mid-size companies in a specific industry category
  • US-based team serving as a strategic buyer targeting portfolio additions

Our greatest impact comes when we partner with PEGs that believe their greatest ROI shows up when they have a high-performing team in place.  We’ve had great success in helping ownership teams reach their goals, and we would be honored to do the same for you.
