Hunt Scanlon Media to Host Private Equity Recruiting Conference

New research points to chronic global leadership shortages in private equity sector

January 8, 2019 – GREENWICH, Conn. – According to a coming research report from Hunt Scanlon Media, the private equity sector can expect to see an expanding bidding war for top talent. Driving the trend: persistent global talent shortages across the C-suite in most industries and functions, including finance, healthcare and biotech, digital and technology.

“Leadership is the new bottom line for private equity operating executives seeking top talent for their portfolio businesses,” said Scott A. Scanlon, the firm’s founding chairman and CEO. “The PE sector is in the crosshairs of a widening war for leadership.”

Hunt Scanlon is convening 300 private equity leaders, chief talent officers and executive recruiters on May 1, 2019 in New York City to further explore the topic of ‘Private Equity Recruiting: Linking Talent to Value,’ with PE experts presenting from General Atlantic Partners, Bain Capital, Korn Ferry, TPG, McKinsey & Company, The Carlyle Group, Apollo Global Management, Egon Zehnder, Hellman & Friedman, and JM Search among others.

“Value creation for private equity firms is no longer beholden to financial engineering,” said Mr. Scanlon. “Instead, returns are best maximized by building top flight management teams to drive the top line, find operating efficiencies and transform culture. Our roster of experts will help us find solutions and tell us how to get it done.”
