PEER: Private Equity-backed Executives' Roundtable

PEER (Private Equity-backed Executives Roundtable) is an invitation-only networking community exclusively for CEOs and CFOs of PE-backed companies. We meet four to five times a year to discuss common challenges as well as to share solutions and tested strategies in a confidential, peer-only environment. (No service providers or investors are allowed.)

Past topics of discussion have included managing growth, Board relations in good times and bad, planning a future exit, talent management and optimizing your relationship with your PE partner. Every meeting also includes open networking time to provide an opportunity to connect with other people who have truly walked in your shoes.

The commitment is small, and the benefits are great.
