IRG specialise in helping Private Equity funds to hire investment and operating professionals as well as assisting portfolio companies with board level hiring. We bring an inclusive balance of experience, connections, high profile candidates, and a network of professionals which drives our ability to provide the essential solutions required in the complexity of Private Equity investments.

In recent years, private equity firms have developed their offerings and have moved from leveraged buyouts into venture capital funding, investing and turnaround. Deal sizes continue to grow and therefore competition for those deals is expanding. Therefore, PE firms are continuously looking for individuals to drive both operational and financial value in their portfolio companies.

Competition in the market is high, but the skillset required for leaders in the private equity space has changed as well. Individuals must be responsible for conducting due diligence work, setting strategy, generating deals, managing operations and advising investors on complex investment approaches in an intense and high-growth environment. We are accustomed to working with Private Equity houses requiring new management to reinforce investments at the start, or to accelerate the development of existing business.

We also assist with the need to construct management teams to develop an exit strategy, or corporate groups who are seeking individuals for teams immediately following a disposal or acquisition. Our Private Equity practice operates internationally and has experience across different geographies and varied industries and disciplines.
