We help PE houses recruit the leaders they need to deliver increased operational value and maximise the potential of their investments. We offer a comprehensive range of services to PE houses to support their portfolio businesses with high calibre individuals across the whole investment lifecycle. With a proven track record in Private Equity, our partners have the experience and expertise to act at pace and deliver on your requirements.
Our conversations with Private Equity houses often start with a problem within a portfolio company that either an interim or consultancy solution can resolve. Usually, the transformation required precedes a permanent hire, something our search and interim businesses can work hand in hand on. Typical scenarios include:
We can demonstrate many case studies where we have deployed Executive talent within short timelines who have delivered results fast.
Simon Gough has had a successful career of 10 years in interim executive search. Clients experiencing transformational change programmes and turnarounds turn to Simon when their portfolio companies, particularly at the pre- and post-deal stages, require interim executive talent spanning the C-suite and board of directors.
Richard Ashton leads Savannah Group’s Professional Services and Private Equity practice. He has spent over a decade working with a variety of private equity backed (both at fund level and in the portfolio), public and private businesses across all industry sectors with a principle focus on the recruitment of CFOs and Non-Executive Directors.
Phil Peters is a technology expert with over 20 years in executive search. He specialises in senior executives and non-executive directors appointments in the digital sector. Among the many assignments he has successfully completed are 30 CEO and 10 board chairman appointments for public companies and investors’ portfolio companies.
Our consultants have on average more than 15 years of search experience within each of their specialised areas, bringing unparalleled levels of expertise, credibility and trust among clients and candidates alike.
Our deep understanding of different segments in the industry allows us to challenge our client’s thinking and introduce new talent from different sectors in a creative and compelling way. Deep personal relationships with industry leaders, less off limits, and a blended search and interim practice gives us access to people that simply aren’t on the radar or accessible to other firms.
With decades of collective experience in identifying and securing high performing executives, Savannah offers a rigorous global search process based on deep functional and industry knowledge. Major global search firms run thousands of searches a year, and as a result aren’t always able to approach who they want due to extensive client off-limit restrictions. Savannah combines the quality, agility and dedication of a boutique firm with the specialism and global capability of a larger search firm.
From business transformation to crisis management, our experienced team, integrated interim and search practices, and accelerated search process finds you the senior leaders needed to drive short-term fundamental change. We are one of the only firms to have a truly integrated search and interim offering, able to provide short term tactical and long term strategic hiring solutions. This provides clients access to the human capital resources they need right now, whatever maturity stage your business is in.
