Why we’re a top private equity search firm.

We know private equity investors are keenly aware that leadership talent can be the difference between success and failure for a portfolio company. Our consultants understand this and routinely meet the high bar for talent, identifying Operating Partners, CEOs, CFOs, and other executives with the right technical skills and the private equity profile: the capability to work with limited resources, get their hands dirty, achieve performance metrics—and do it all fast. ON Partners was recently ranked one of the most prominent executive search firms in the private equity market. And, for more information about our work, see our recent article on the future of Operating Partners.

Private Equity Executive Search Approach:

Our approach is untraditional – by choice. We got rid of what wasn’t working (unnecessary layers, outdated practices, cookie-cutter solutions) and envisioned a firm made up of executive partners without limits.

Our private equity partners are less limited in what types of companies and candidates they can work with or how they grow their practices. Each of our partners brings specialized expertise across industries and functions at the C-level and board.

Think of our partners as a team of MVPs who are free to build their own portfolios and team up to give you the best combination of marketplace expertise, prioritized consulting and a wider range of candidate networks.

The result is untraditional, original executive search. That works.
