Case for Change

A Private Equity company needed to bring structure to its talent management processes to show significantly higher operational value creation for the firm and its portfolio companies.

Shared Vision

To build a clear structure focused on sourcing and acquiring high-performance executives to drive value creation at portfolio companies.

Feasible Plan

The Kinetic team were immersed in the business to build deep knowledge of the business' underlying investment thesis and identify roles / practices needing priority change. We managed the entire executive search process from start to completion, including search firm and partner selections, quality control, creating specific briefs for each role being filled, and acting as “lead chair” in all candidate interviews.

Capability to Deliver

Over the course of 4 years, we hired approx. 25 CEOs, 28 CFOs, 5 COOs, 12 CHROs, 5 CTOs, 5 CMOs for portfolio companies and 10 Senior Advisors / Operators for Business. Markedly greater exit value for affected funds and credibility with financial institutions during exits.

Result

Executive placement success rate improved from <50% to >85% in just under 3 years’ worth of C suite engagements. Markedly greater exit value for affected funds & credibility with financial institutions during exits.
