Value Accelerators Chart for CEOs

DHR Identifies and Recruits Value Accelerator CEOs

DHR’s private equity team know that the best private equity CEOs rank highly on both strategic focus and execution mindset – placing them in the “Value Accelerator” category.

Our practice is customized to help you find and hire these highly-sought after leaders who demonstrate the industry and leadership competencies required:

  • Balance of strong EQ and IQ
  • Demonstrated ability to build a real team and create followership based on culture
  • Embraces investor objectives and partners well
  • Focuses on high value initiatives and is measurement oriented
  • Thinks like an owner and allocates capital surgically
  • Knows the numbers working with CFO and Board

Industry Perspective

“The single most important thing is to make sure you have the right leadership for the business. In a world economy that remains prone to macro shocks, the firms we work for are looking for expertise and a successful record, but equally important, CEOs who really want to make a difference transforming a company.
