PE firm in need of a short-term resource


Challenge

A private equity fund in our network unexpectedly lost two mid-level investment team members within a few weeks of each other. In order to avoid missing out on active deal opportunities, the PE fund needed to quickly find a short-term resource who could meet its team standards and bridge the gap while it searched for a full-time hire.

Solution

With our extensive private equity knowledge, rooted in our founder’s 20 years of PE industry experience, we use time-tested frameworks to assess PE-grade investment professionals for interim work opportunities with our clients. We quickly identified several candidates whose experience matched the exacting needs of the PE fund based on specific criteria outlined during the initial assessment.

Result

Within two weeks, a top-tier MBA with four years of relevant PE experience joined the team. The independent consultant was integrated into the core team quickly to ensure that projects stayed on course. He stayed for three months, giving the PE fund client stability and a much-needed resource while it searched for a full-time candidate.
