Backable CEOs

We offer private equity firms and hedge funds a Backable CEO Investment Package that consists of the following:

  • A fully vetted CEO with a track record of success in his/her chosen industry;
  • A target acquisition company (or companies) meeting your investment criteria;
  • A tested investment thesis for your consideration;
  • An executive search team to conduct additional research on behalf of the the private equity client to conduct additional research on the Backable CEO candidate and/or other senior management as needed.

View some of our recent BCEO deals. Our clients value the proprietary deal flow that R.B. Price & Company offers — Backable CEOs with a well-vetted idea. We proactively research and bring forward opportunities to you so you add to deal flow and gain competitive advantage.

Placeable CEOs

We also maintain a database of over 1,000 leading CEO candidates who wish to run a private equity backed company but have not yet identified a target acquisition. These Placeable CEOs may be just right for the acquisition you are now considering – or they may also be appropriate candidates for positions in one or more of your current portfolio companies.

Interim Executives

From time to time private equity firms are in need of interim management to solve short-term problems. We have a roster of C-level executives (experienced CEOs, COOs, CFOs, etc.) seeking temporary senior level positions where their personal expertise can add significant value. Most of these executives have deep domain expertise in particular industry segments.

Operating Partners / Board Members

R.B. Price & Company assists private equity firms seeking industry experts to help evaluate deals, serve as an adviser or a mentor to CEOs, or take positions as board members at portfolio companies. Many of our Backable and Placeable CEOs are ready and willing to serve in these capacities. We also undertake retained search assignments to fill these positions.

Project Managers

Private equity firms and their portfolio companies alike often have need for experienced, certified project managers. R.B. Price & Company can provide Project Managers who are experienced at working on a project-by-project basis and capable of overseeing the implementation of company-wide operating needs.

Senior Staff

The key functions of sales and marketing, finance and accounting and human resources are areas where R.B. Price & Company brings a wealth of experience to bear for our private equity clients. Within our clients’ portfolio companies top-notch personnel are needed for on-going operations improvement.
