Welcome to the latest edition of our Private Equity Portfolio Newsletter. With summer in full swing, I hope you’re able to enjoy this warm weather with family and friends. We’re seeing strong activity in the private equity world in general, and have seen a nice blend of new business from long-term P.E. clients and first-time partners.

Help is on the way: Our Thought Leadership Blog features industry insights from our expert team members. In this issue, we underscore that phase in the evolution of every company when a true professional financial executive becomes a necessity. Senior associate recruiter Ryan Krumroy explains how to find and hire a CFO.

We continue to work on great opportunities and we want to hear from you: Below you will find a brief summary of each opportunity that we are working on, as well as the contact information for the Charles Aris team member who is spearheading the search. Please reach out to anyone on my team, or to me directly, to discuss these opportunities in greater detail – or feel free to forward this email along to friends and colleagues who may have an interest in learning more.
