Private Equity
Your talent partner across your firm and the companies in which you invest

Success in private capital no longer lies purely in the ability to raise capital and deploy it wisely. Firms must have the best possible talent overseeing their investments and leading the companies in which they invest. The intense competition for investments in today’s market requires the talent edge. Both private equity and private debt have experienced extraordinary growth, and our Private Equity Practice has grown in tandem, working with portfolio companies and at the General and Limited Partner levels to advise across a broad range of value-add scenarios.

From pre-investment due diligence to the appointment of new executive leadership or board of directors, Heidrick & Struggles delivers across all sectors, all geographies, and across different fund sizes and categories.

Recruiting Opportunities
We are experiencing one of the strongest markets for talent that we have seen in generations. The effects of a global pandemic, followed by a voluntary shut-down of our global economy, led to over $700B being put to work. As the economy reset, valuations followed. Investment activity has led to an incredibly active year in the pursuit of talent.”
