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.”
