Private Equity

We work with private equity backed businesses, building and sourcing highly effective management teams who are investor ready. We bring extensive industry experience having worked in the investor space since our inception in 2000. We have an exceptional advisory network across Private Equity Groups, Wealth Management and the Corporate Advisory community, as well as with many leading investment banks.

We understand all the different aspects of a deal; from sourcing an investor, to bringing in professional advisors, managing the operational reporting and then preparing for the future exit stage, and have worked with PE backed management teams, sourcing on an international basis across all leadership disciplines from the CEO, to Operations and Non-Exec Directors.

Many of our clients fall into the tech space, covering software, R&D and new Product Development, and we also mentor start up businesses in this space. These businesses can often be early stage and pre-revenue businesses, who require hands on executives who bring an established network to help them grow.

We understand the huge opportunity a PE investor can bring to a business in terms of structure, scale up and order book ambition. However, we are also acutely aware of the risk element that can go with this territory, with rewards based on growth and deal delivery, which in turn looks to enhance shareholder value before working towards an exit strategy. During this period, you need a search firm that you can not only trust, but one that understands the dynamics of the PE investor relationship and the full business cycle.

We pride ourselves on sourcing and delivering exceptionally talented individuals who want to join a company with a definitive goal and who understand the relationship between the business and private investor.
