PE firms are notoriously demanding and this sets the bar exceptionally high on the quality of our candidates. These individuals have to be highly experienced, adept and driven, with specific sector insight and scarce skill sets. They must have an unrelenting focus on operational efficiency and creating value for shareholders. Such entrepreneurial candidates possess the ideal characteristics to add significant weight to a high-growth, private enterprise.
