As part of its goal to bring value added content and networking to more professionals in the private equity community, ACG Boston has launched an Operating Partner Roundtable series. The inaugural session was attended by a diverse group of Operating Partners and other professionals who support portfolio company performance. The virtual roundtable event offered PE operating partners a chance to connect with peers and to facilitate an open discussion around business concerns and how Operating Partners plan to approach 2021. For those who missed the event, here is a summary of the discussion.
An around the table survey of the Operating Partners highlighted a number of topics the group wanted to discuss and seek advice from their counterparts. These included:
While these were all topics worthy of discussion, and ones that are sure to be addressed at future roundtable sessions, the group decided to start the dialogue by sharing their thoughts on coordinating with the deal teams and portfolio company management as the group agreed it’s an issue that comes up frequently. Below are some of the key takeaways.
Overall, this first roundtable was a success. It reinforced the need for these forums in helping Operating Partners and other private equity professionals engaged in portfolio company value creation expand their knowledge of the tools, techniques, and best practices their colleagues are using.
Be on the lookout for our next Roundtable discussion and be sure to attend and share insights with your colleagues.
