BrainWorks has made a strategic commitment to serving leading private equity investors and their portfolio companies. We have developed a strong track record of partnering with investors to identify the human capital strategies most critical to achieving their investment thesis, accelerating value creation, and positioning them for a strong exit.
Our track record has been built by disrupting the traditional 90-day retained search methodology. While a standard in the corporate world, in order to compete in today’s economy and stay ahead of the market in recruiting and retaining top leaders, speed and smarter search have become paramount. Private equity investors generally have great instincts in assessing leaders, but most PE leaders today would say that they lack the same rigor in securing top leaders compared to the rigorous institutionalized processes they undertake in acquiring companies. Brainworks Top Grading based search process institutionalizes talent acquisition utilizing unique qualitative and quantitative measurement tools and scorecards resulting in combining data driven analysis with traditional search assessment.
Another differentiator that BrainWorks offers is the ability to help C Suite Executives build their teams under them to drive business performance. All great leaders know that a great strategy is only as good as the team you have executing that strategy. Our diverse practice areas uniquely situate BrainWorks to fill the team under the leader with top talent while utilizing the same rigor, processes and 30 day timeline as we do for C-Level.
In addition to our Private Equity Practice, BrainWorks has dedicated practices in Accounting & Finance, Accounting & Finance Interim, Analytics, Data Science & Data Governance, Commodities Technology & Trading, Consumer Products, CRM & Direct Marketing, Cybersecurity, Ecommerce & Digital Marketing, Human Resources, IT & Data Engineering, Market Research & Consumer Insights, Operations & Supply Chain, and Sales & Marketing.
