James Berkeley to Discuss Innovative Ways to Maximise the Value of Operating Partners

London, England— 1st April, 2015

James Berkeley, Managing Director of ELLICE CONSULTING LIMITED will be moderating a panel discussion on uncommon ways to apply Operating Partners wisdom to maximise value creation during the deal cycle. The panel session is scheduled for 16th April, 2015 and will be held at the Institute of Directors in London.  Private Equity International’s Operating Partners Forum is the pre-eminent peer-to-peer gathering for professionals in European private equity, who are focused on value creation at the portfolio company level, the operating partners.

“Private equity funds need impressive operating partners more today than at any point in the past decade”, notes Berkeley, an expert in the profitable growth and expansion of private equity-backed portfolio companies. “Amid a dearth of buyouts and a focus in Europe on operational improvement rather than a dependence on growth, operating partners’ expertise, knowledge and contacts are a key point of difference. Yet many private equity funds are self-limiting their Operating Partners impact on the future of portfolio companies for no obvious reason.”

James Berkeley offers dramatic growth opportunities to private equity portfolio companies. He has worked extensively with private equity owners and management internationally to boost top line growth and maximise margins and value through his distinctive approaches to marketing, leveraging relationships, branding and pricing.

Whether it is consulting top management on profitable growth issues, critiquing business acquisition, changing pricing structures or reconfiguring the entire business and delivery model, he has become well-known for his Profitable Growth Regime.

James’s counsel has been sort by senior executives at an array of private equity-owned businesses such as Hilton Worldwide, ASIMCO Technologies, Caesars Entertainment, CKE Restaurants and over 40 other market-leading organisations around the world.
