For Transitioning Executives
For the last decade, Private Equity Headhunters has consistently averaged 86.4% placement rate working directly for executives. 2012 results were 92%, 2011 at 88% and despite weak economy we achieved 78% executive placement rate in 2010.
Following are the opportunities we provide for all executives:
For a nominal retainer fee, Private Equity Headhunters presents the executive to industry relevant companies at no cost to the employer. We work under shared cost approach with qualified executives looking for residual recruiting work from that executive once fully able and in place. With so many companies unwilling to pay recruiter’s fee, this model creates a tremendous opportunity to get introduced to hiring authorities. Operating under this unique win-win model for last ten years, we have built a huge network of relationships with PE/VC firms, executive recruiters and direct hiring authorities. We can also engage our network of private equity firms and strategic buyers to identify companies in need of capital with the premise of the executive leading the business.
With the help of relationships we have built in the last 15 years, we now successfully operate as “business recruiters” for more than 400 private equity groups and strategic buyers that invest in businesses with revenues in range of $10m to over $1b. These investors understand the value of our contacts for relevant deal flow and work exclusively with us. Private Equity Headhunters also uses it’s relationships with senior executives placed by our firm to provide advisory and consulting opportunities to executives and business leaders.
Small-To-Mid Capital Resource
Even if you already have a network of capital resources, Private Equity Headhunters can still offer valuable services to you. For example, we assisted the former CEO of a Cincinnati, OH based Fortune 500 consumer brand company who was looking to raise capital for his own business. Management was seeing $10 million to recapitalize the business but the challenge was that his private equity contacts were all large-cap firms. We were able to help using our relationships with small-to-mid cap buyers.
M&A Intermediary for MBO Executives
Process of placing an executive with a company is very similar to matching a company with an investor. Private Equity Headhunters works as business recruiter to match buyers with executives looking to run a business but lack acquisition capital (MBO Opportunities).
If you are a senior level executive in a career transition but you are having difficulty identifying new employment through traditional channels, consider changing your focus. If you can identify a company you can lead based off of your skills, industry experience, firsthand knowledge and competitive insight. Private Equity Headhunters will use it’s network to match you with buyers and investors who finance such opportunities. This is a tremendous opportunity to drive your career path and we can help you achieve your goals sooner than you may expect.
