In recent years Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE&VC) has become an important tool for driving growth and improving performance at hundreds of businesses worldwide. Research has showed that:
To deliver superior returns, PE investors transform the businesses they acquire over time and substantially improve their performance – Winning PE strategies rest on fundamental business improvements.
In addition to time, energy, and capital, PE investors focus on talent to improve the business’ long term performance and prospects. The value of a PE firm lies in the capabilities of its investment directors. How each investment director acts becomes synonymous with the external brand and reputation of the firm.
At Crelos, we have a thorough understanding of the PE&VC markets and as a result have designed services for firms which have decided that investment in developing their human capital will be a source of competitive advantage.
We offer a confidential executive coaching service and talent development programmes that have been designed to engage, inspire and accelerate the leadership capability of the best investment directors.
By using an innovative and often challenging environment we help generate new ideas and perspectives and give them the tools to develop, flourish and substantially enhance their performance.
