We recently surveyed 100 private equity (PE) executives and 100 portfolio company CEOs to identify similarities and differences in what they consider the desirable attributes and behaviors of a successful portfolio company CEO.

Our study explores the challenges facing portfolio company CEOs, and then looks ahead to the impact COVID-19 has had on perceptions and expectations of them.

Find these and other insights inside:

  • Building a high performing executive leadership team is the #1 factor to success.
  • The biggest challenge for CEOs is the inability to build relationships with the board of directors or leadership team.
  • 84% of CEOs and PE board members are checking in with each other more frequently than before the pandemic.
  • On average, an underperforming CEO is allowed to stay in their role for 10 months before changing course.
