Private Equity & Venture Capital

Green Park possesses a wealth of experience working with businesses backed by Private Equity, and we understand the specific challenges Private Equity stakeholders present.

Green Park is a long-term business partner to a number of successful PE backed businesses, providing insight, advice and opportunities across ongoing relationships, whether there is ‘live’ recruitment or not at any given point.

We know that PE businesses work extremely fast, and that decisions are often made under extreme pressure. Our approach is to take the position of a genuine strategic partner, taking responsibility and accountability for delivering on our promises, taking the pressure off your key stakeholders.

The executives we provide to our private equity clients are adept at leveraging business to accelerate growth, drive turnaround, or seize a business opportunity. The ability to deliver on particular outcomes is critical in this market as organisations are often looking to bolster or change management teams with reward mechanisms heavily weighted to performance.

We also know that the PE environment demands different skill-sets to the wider market, and we draw on our established research channels and network of PE backed leadership talent to identify, find and attract the right talent for your sector, as well as your unique business challenges. We understand that, in the PE world, demonstrable return on investment is mandatory, and our focus is on delivering ‘Right First Time’.
