Private Equity

Private Equity is currently in an aggressive environment with unprecedented capital levels generating significant competition seeking attractive investments.

Allen Associates was one of the first retained search firms to make a strategic commitment to serving the Private Equity industry.

A significant portion of the firm’s business is directly related to companies owned by Private Equity firms. 


Creating Value

The practice typically focuses on C-level, executive level, and board searches. Our firm’s leaders have backgrounds operating Private Equity sponsored portfolio companies, delivering counsel and executing major portfolio leadership searches. We understand the unique nuances and working timelines associated with these opportunities, the key characteristics and executive profile required for success in this world.

We work privately regarding post-acquisition management assessments and organizational chart development. Most importantly, we grade ourselves by the outcome. We’ve installed full management teams that have driven significant value creation for the shareholders while positioning the company for ongoing future growth and prosperity.
