Private equity and venture capital firms are in a bidding war for top talent – and those moving decisively for the right leadership are winning. This package of two market intelligence reports from Hunt Scanlon Media examines the growing talent dilemma unfolding at private equity and venture capital firms – and offers an array of solutions to win the widening war for leadership. According to Hunt Scanlon, the PE sector can expect to see an expanding bidding war for top talent over the next decade. Driving the trend: persistent global talent shortages across the C-suite in most industries and functions, including finance, healthcare and biotech, digital and technology.
Linking talent to value is the first report’s overriding theme. Hunt Scanlon has surveyed hundreds of private equity leaders and their chief talent officers as well as leading executive recruiters specializing in the sector. Their expert commentary and advice is contained in this first report. Linking talent to growth is the subject of the upcoming second report. This report will shift the focus to how talent can stimulate growth in private equity and venture capital firms respectively.
Expertise from around the private equity, venture capital, and executive search community was shared from leaders at:
Bain Capital, Davis Partners Group, Korn Ferry, TPG, McKinsey & Company, Russell Reynolds Associates, The Carlyle Group, Blackstone, Apollo Global Management, Egon Zehnder, YSC Consulting, Caldwell, JM Search, Warburg Pincus, Signal Partners, Hogan Assessments, TritonExec, Blue Wolf Capital, Perella Weinberg Partners, DHR International, Hanold Associates, Diversified Search, Beecher Reagan, Frederickson Partners, Green Peak Partners, Invenias, Littlejohn, True Search, Blue Mountain Capital, Wilton & Bain, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, FFL Partners, Norwest Venture Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, Ventura Partners, Khosla Ventures, Francisco Partners, Opus Advisors, Welsh Carson Anderson & Stowe and others from across the PE spectrum.
According to part 1 of the report package, value creation for private equity firms is no longer beholden to financial engineering. Instead, returns are best maximized by building top flight management teams to drive revenue, find operating efficiencies and transform culture. The second report explores the link between talent and growth. The report examines why success in the PE & VC community – long synonymous with growth – is now tied inextricably to talent.
While the PE/VC sector is in the crosshairs of a widening war for leadership, reports Hunt Scanlon, that leadership is the new bottom line for PE/VC operating executives seeking top talent for their portfolio businesses.
