Operating Partners Briefing - The Post Acquisition 100 Day Plan

Operating Partners (OPs) play an increasingly important role in portfolio company value creation. In their role as key points of contact with company management, they can have unique insights into portfolio company challenges, needs and opportunities. As a result, they are often called upon to bring specialized expertise to the table, either directly or through trusted advisors. Expectations regarding the contributions of OPs are high with pressure even higher.
Join us as we explore how OPs bridge the delta between pre-acquisition expectations and post-acquisition realities. Our panel of experts will share their personal experiences detailing lessons learned through the challenges, mistakes, surprises, and solutions of their ever-evolving role.
Topics Include:
  • Trends that affect the OPs role
  • Technology and automation as key drivers
  • When to use in-house team vs. outside support partners
  • Case studies on determining focus and priority, planning vs. implementation
    & handling strategic and tactical improvements
Attendance will be limited to pre-acquisition deal partners, post-acquisition operating partners, portfolio company executives and value creation service providers (post acquisition consultants, accountants etc.)  If you are uncertain about meeting the criteria to attend, please email Vikash Magdani, ACG New York Executive Director at
