In talks with PE firms, Proudfoot recognized that Private Equity companies face these same challenges; the PE Future Hub is an open way to shine a light on discussions around these topics as a means to begin shaping the Private Equity firms of the future.
"I am delighted to join the Proudfoot team under the direction of Pam's leadership to build this exciting new community for Private Equity and continue shaping this vertical. After our two most recent events, we've already started to connect people across the industry and published the PE Inaugural Forum Discussion highlights for review by the community. We've also published the Mining Finance Trends white paper to support our natural resources colleagues, have several research papers in development and are leading the conversation on topics that are top of mind in both the operating and deal sides of Private Equity," says Ms. Schoenfeld. "I encourage leaders in the industry to join our community and Private Equity LinkedIn group here to further the discussions and dialogue and to download the white paper outlining key areas including key growth indicators, investor priorities, investor concerns and key takeaways for producers."
