In your sector
The world of private equity has evolved significantly in recent times. Over the past two years, we have noticed a noticeable new trend in private equity and venture capital houses becoming more involved with their own investments. In turn, this means they are getting more involved with the associated hiring of change and transformation specialists.
Often, we are tasked with replacing or energising the existing management team within a portfolio company or with helping an existing team prepare the business for sale. This has seen us identify and place strong interim leaders for the positions of CEO, CFO or COO. Increasingly, we are also being asked for access to our mentor, NED, advisory and CIO networks.
Our expertise lies in connecting high-calibre interim talent to the specific challenge and opportunity faced within private equity. Whatever the challenge you face, we can connect with you high-performing professionals who can enable success.
Helping you deliver better outcomes
The right people
Private equity firms have very specific, often short-term goals for businesses in which they have invested. Our consultancy and interim management expertise is ideally suited to finding the right people solution for achieving the best outcome in these circumstances.
How we help
We can source high-calibre interims for a range of assignments including market intelligence for deal origination, all the way through to exit on a contingent assignment basis.
For every mandate, we advise on neighbouring skill sets and industries to further broaden the brief. This expands the potential pool of executives we can select from and is proves invaluable in those industries with emerging technologies.
We’ll find the best available, or soon to be available, subject matter expert for your needs.
All our interim managers are deployed directly into the portfolio company, except in the case of pre-deal due diligence.
We have been helping clients in the private equity space since 2003 and have established ourselves as an interim management provider that really understands the needs of the industry.
The focus of our work has become increasingly international in recent years, as London has become the focal point for large and medium sized private equity houses operating across mainland Europe and beyond into the Middle East and Far East.
As such, we have built an excellent network with international reach offering a combination of a pool of executive talent who have previously been deployed in ex-pat roles, through to partners in country to extend our network and capability.
Our deep market knowledge, connectivity extends to the following core markets:
- Banking and financial services
- Private health and wellness
- Real estate
- Retail and leisure
- Manufacturing and engineering
- Infrastructure, business and support services
