Frequently Asked Questions about PEER

What is PEER?

The Private Equity-backed Executive Roundtable (PEER) is a network of private equity-backed,
c-suite executives that offers
topical, insightful programs driven by peer CEOs and CFOs. Each gathering offers ample time for networking, idea sharing and group discussion in a confidential peer only environment.

 

Why should I be part of this network?
The value of this confidential, peer only network is the opportunity to:

  • Engage with a community of like-minded executives who live the challenges and opportunities of PE backing.
  • Collaborate with peers to gain exposure to ideas and managerial tactics that can help drive growth and optimize the relationship with your PE partner.
  • Share experiences and best practices to succeed at every turn, from navigating the investment process and managing growth to planning a future exit.


What should I expect?

We have 5 simple guidelines:

  • Events are Invitation Only to executives at current or recently exited PE-backed companies
  • Seating is limited to keep our sessions intimate and interactive
  • Discussions are 100% confidential, affording attendees the opportunity to speak openly
  • Attendees should be prepared to discuss what you do know, and ask questions about what you don't
  • Critical issues faced by PE-backed companies are addressed quarterly and we always encourage feedback to guide future topics

 

Will speakers, sponsors or service providers try to sell me their services based on what I talk about?

No, all Roundtables are by invitation only, and open exclusively to your PE-backed company peers. There are no service providers in attendance.

 

What topics have PEER covered in the past?

  • Managing your Board in Good Times & Bad
  • Building a High Performance Management Team in a PE Backed Company
  • Lessons Learned from Serial PE-Backed Company Executives
