Hunt Scanlon Media’sThe Importance of Middle Management in PE-Backed Portfolio Companies

Middle managers in any organization act as the glue that enables everything to happen. They connect, enable and provide whatever their teams and first-line managers need to get their work done. 

Join The Tolan Group on June 23rd for an interactive webinar supported by Hunt Scanlon Media focused on ‘The Importance of Middle Management in Portfolio Companies.’ We examine how the executive search industry can complement the growth strategy for PE-backed portfolio companies. This a great opportunity to hear first-hand from some of the key players in private equity. They will share valuable insights into what is happening and why middle management teams are now more important than ever to their organizations.

We will be joined by Robbie Allen, CEO at One GI; Melanie Brensinger, GP at Anagenesis Capital Partners; and Lindsey Webb, head of talent acquisition at E78 Partners

Topics to be discussed include:

● Why solid leadership at the mid management level is so important – Do they help or hinder the growth, scale and exit strategy of senior management?

● The synergy between the executive team and middle management – Middle managers have close proximity to the individual contributor. Are there mixed messages being communicated to the divisions?

● Conflict resolution between Senior and Mid-level Managers – How are differing views expressed and enforced within the organization? If needed, how are adjustments made?

●PE Sponsor accountability – Should Middle Managers have a seat in the accountability meetings?

●Diversity among middle management – Is it more or as important to have diversity among middle management roles vs. executive management roles?

There will be an opportunity for audience members to put their questions to panel members. Join the conversation.
