Private Equity/ Family Office
Private Equity firms and Family Offices are major customers of Ray Partners. The executives they seek are a special breed. They must be fiscally sound, creative in approach, and exceptional leaders to succeed in today’s demanding environment. Since profit margins have been squeezed in recent years across industry, leaders of private equity firms and family offices are constantly challenged with improving operating efficiency, reducing overhead, and finding new markets for portfolio companies. While many times the investment strategy varies between private equity and family offices, the investment thesis is the same – generating above market returns for appropriate levels of risk.
Ray Partners is a private equity search firm accustomed to locating executives who fit the profile described above. Often, these are executives who have been trained in large, world class companies that have gone on to be seasoned in more entrepreneurial environments.
