CEO Alpha: A New Approach to Generating Private Equity Outperformance

Marla Capozzi Partner – McKinsey & Company

Human capital is a top priority for private equity firms.  This reflects, in large part, the super-charged and highly competitive environment we find ourselves in for talent. But it also reflects the unique executive profiles that PE portfolio company CEOs are targeting, as well as the increasing number of top level roles they must fill. In this special presentation, a partner at one of the world’s most respected management consulting firms takes us inside the complicated hunt for how CEOs can be a new source of outperformance through CEO Alpha where leaders are execution focused, decision oriented, financially astute and driven to make consequential decisions quickly. It is why matching talent to value is becoming a precision-guided principle at top PE firms.
