Breakfast Briefing
Private Equity-Backed CEO Perspectives

In March, we flip the tables and give CEOs of private-equity backed companies the opportunity to share their candid insights about the most successful strategies and challenges they face in driving growth and value creation in today's increasingly competitive economy.

Our CEOs will discuss how they view the advantages and pitfalls of different types of ownership structures including private, public, PE owned and then will focus on strategies and practices that drive and hinder value creation.

Topics of discussion include: 
  • Pros and cons of PE-backing
  • Business models which are more or less ideally suited for private equity ownership versus other structures
  • Strategies that best leverage the PE ownership / practices that can impede growth
  • Key considerations for PE owners to build a partnership with their management team and drive value
