a necessary component for creating value
The benefits of having experienced private equity executives together with in-house operating expertise (as opposed to external consultants) is relevant to all stages of the value creation life cycle. They will drive maximum growth and improve EBITDA in portfolio companies. Three major differentiators are key for this success:
- Focus: emphasis on adding incremental operating value to companies;
- Influence: building effective growing organisations; increasing trust and credibility inside the company in order to influence outcomes more effectively than external consultants can;
- “Best-fit”: good alignment between deal and operating teams which should lead to mutual support, broader engagement and ultimately, better results.
