037: What Makes CEOs of Private Equity Backed Companies Successful

Although PE-backed company CEOs and other CEOs share the same role, a PE-backed CEO is tasked with unique challenges.

Many of them accept the role but come underprepared for what lies ahead.

I have been recently invited to share my thoughts about the subject on the “The Private Equity Podcast”, where I have been interviewed by Alex Rawlings.

Here is what I shared:

  • The common mistakes made by Private Equity Firms

  • How to assess the current leadership team

  • Two best skills of CEOs

  • The leadership challenges of acquisitions

  • How PEs can help CEOs and their teams

  • The three best attributes of successful CEOs

  • My suggested books for CEOs
