Newly acquired portfolio companies represent the ultimate talent challenge.

You need to determine if the executives that led the company thus far will be able to execute your strategy and lead the company into the future. Specifically, do you have the leadership necessary to achieve your investment thesis, whether it be driving revenue growth, reducing costs, or building new organizational capabilities?

Just as a great CEO and leadership team can propel a company to new heights of success, the wrong leaders can be debilitating. In fact, according to a recent study in Harvard Business Review, portfolio company leadership has a direct 10-15 percent impact on financial performance and a 25-30 percent impact on market valuation.
