Partners in Private Equity

Delivering Transformational Leaders in Private Equity & Venture Capital.

It takes a unique blend of business skills and experience to lead PE-owned and VC-backed companies.

This means executives who understand the strategic, tactical, and cultural imperatives that must prevail to drive accelerated growth while implementing the right level of systems and infrastructure across sales & business development, marketing, and product development & management. It also means leaders who understand how to clarify and elevate a core value proposition while building strong foundations necessary for fast-growth companies to leverage innovation and penetrate existing and emerging markets. Identifying and evaluating seasoned leaders with the requisite skill sets and aptitudes and being able to communicate the strategic value proposition of a PE-backed company is more than just recruiting an executive for a new role. Indeed, typically it requires the involvement of talent acquisition professionals with an uncommonly high level of PE and VC industry experience and insight.

At Torch Group, we are well versed in the art and science of finding and acquiring top leadership talent for PE-owned and VC-backed businesses across functional areas ranging from sales and marketing to the C-suite level management in industries that run the gamut from food equipment, food service, construction & building materials, B2B software, data analytics & BI, cloud-infrastructure management, cybersecurity, and B2B manufacturing. Torch Group’s experience in executive search across such diverse industries, along with our competency-based interview protocol and comprehensive Signature Search Process, allows us to find and reliably evaluate leaders who understand the operating constraints and efficiencies, innovative management, and cultural transformation that are the hallmarks of effective PE and VC company management.
