Top 50 Private Equity Firms for Executives


Alignment between financial sponsors and private equity-backed executives is essential for a successful investment. The Annual Top 50 Private Equity Firms for Executives Report highlights those funds whose governance style and engagement create an environment that best enables their executives to achieve success — according to the executives themselves.

Through a collaboration between PrivateEquityCXO and Falcon Partners, winners were determined by the first-hand experiences of executives in the market, one-on-one interviews, and a survey of thousands of sponsor-backed executives highlighting their experiences and rating funds on PE-CXO’s Nine Dimensions of Governance Fit®.

This report equips executives with a strategic and intentional framework by which to assess opportunities and evaluate fit with a sponsor. These findings reinforce the critical role governance fit plays in accelerating or stagnating value creation. For their part, sponsors can use the information in this report to assess executive fit and align their talent strategy.

The findings in this report continue to validate the Nine Dimensions framework as a tool for sponsors and management when conducting mutual diligence ahead of key hiring decisions or when seeking performance improvement.
