Portfolio Company Advisory & Recruiting for Startups

ACCUR prides itself in recruiting entrepreneurial-minded CEO and other candidates for privately-held, private equity-backed companies, especially those engaged in rapid growth or venturing into an emerging market. Combining flexibility and our experience with Fortune 500 companies and candidates, we are highly attuned to the needs of private equity firms to see growth and turnaround in their portfolio companies and recruit CEO and other executive talent to fill those specialized needs.

Startup Recruiting at a glance

When advising a privately held firm, whether a startup or family business, we know that time is of the essence. We look for candidates who can serve the strategic goals of a private equity investor on a time scale that will satisfy a mandate for growth and profitability.

We know how to look beyond the resume and source candidates who can perform at a high level in a startup or new market opportunity, and finally we look for individuals who have a track record for talent development, because executive ranks often change dramatically with a change in leadership.

Private Equity Industry Recruitment Market

We find the following concerns rising to the top for our clients who hail from the world of startups and private equity:

  • Resilience: Startup executives must not only be able to deal with rapidly changing work environments, they must thrive in such environments and produce results for shareholders.
  • Execution: We find that startups often need leadership who can both manage and execute, so we look to candidates with both traditional and non-traditional resumes to find track records of success in these key areas.
  • Return-minded: While all executives must be attuned to the bottom line, those brought in to oversee a turnaround or a change in direction in a privately held company must be particularly keyed into investor concerns.

Successful Private Equity Executive Searches

Our recruiters excel at identifying top talent for private equity-backed portfolio companies. We follow an extensive 9-step process designed to identify top performers who are well-positioned to drive growth and efficiency in this business environment.
