Becoming a Non-Exec Chair in a Private Equity World: Report

Grace Blue hosted a recent networking and panel discussion with SI Partners, designed to help leaders interested in a career beyond the C-suite, and how to navigate becoming a Non-Exec Chair in a Private Equity-backed company.

Following the event, we have produced a paper summarising the panel discussion. The purpose of this paper is to highlight the key advice for anyone interested in pursuing this avenue, especially coming from the world of media, technology and communications. This is based on input from the key stakeholders in appointing a NXC:

  • The NXC: John Farrell, Founder & Principal at John Farrell & Associates
  • The PE Talent Leader: Cordelia Dolan, Global Head of Portfolio Talent at Investindustrial
  • The PE Investor: David Andrews, Partner at LDC of Lloyds Banking Group
  • The Headhunter: Sarah Skinner, EMEA CEO at Grace Blue Partnership
