Don't wait to hire the skilled pE talent your company needs

Over the last decade we at Preston & Company have witnessed the significant growth of the Private Markets. Private markets/ private equity has gone from alternative to mainstream, becoming essential vehicles for investors to achieve exposure to various pockets of economic growth. Capital has poured in, and the industry has grown significantly. Beginning with leveraged buyouts and Venture Capital, Private Equity has since led the way. Now we are seeing similar growth in Private Credit, Real Estate, and Infrastructure. When Private Equity takes over a business, it must focus on improvements and a return on investment. Many times, that includes developing or replacing leadership and other talent in these portfolio companies. Competition for this leadership has become fierce. Factoring in diversity adds to this challenge of identifying and attracting skilled leaders and talent.

client Testimonials

"I have worked with Preston & Company, and Joe and his colleagues since 2005 on numerous senior leadership searches in both insurance and investment management across the C-Suite realm. One of the most remarkable legacies of Joe’s involvement has been that each of the hires is still in the roles we recruited them for, going back to 2005 in some cases. This speaks to the thoroughness of his approach, his ability to understand the needs of the hiring organization and ability to find the right cultural match result in talent for the long-game. Joe is always easily acceptable and often pushes you to think about context and considerations that might not have been apparent. Ours is not a transactional relationship, he has become a strategic business partner and a friend."
