The leadership you need now

“Being an effective leader in a PE-backed company often requires a significant adjustment in terms of both mindset and behavior.” Nick Twyman – Partner | Private Equity Lead 


Current macroeconomic factors, including inflation and recession, have increased market uncertainty and softened portfolio company valuations. These challenges have also made it even more difficult to deliver value creation plan objectives and achieve exit ambitions in line with the original investment thesis.

In today’s complex operating environment, portfolio company leaders need to be at the top of their game to deliver sustainable growth and value creation to investors, employees, and other key stakeholders.


Ensuring that your operating teams have the requisite leadership competencies and behaviors to successfully navigate an increasingly challenging business climate has never been more essential.
