Executive Recruiters for Private Equity/Venture Capital


Your private equity/venture capital recruitment agency

Private equity and venture capital investment firms have unique recruiting needs. Along with hiring investment professionals and leaders for their own teams, they often need to find talent for their portfolio companies. This can include critical executive search services for leadership roles like CEO, where they need candidates who have both operational experience and the business acumen to develop smart growth strategies. While these searches are always a challenge, they are especially so for PE and VC investors, who often don’t have hands-on expertise in the industries of the businesses they fund.

Lock Search Group is the ideal executive search firm to help with all of these recruitment needs. Our recruiters have a deep knowledge of both the financial landscape and sectors like technology, biotech, life sciences, engineering, and other areas where private equity and venture capital firms often invest their funds. As a recruiting firm, we have a track record of success hiring for organizations of all stages and sizes, from seed-round startups to multinational corporations. At the start of each search, we take the time to get to the heart of the client’s hiring challenges and tailor our recruitment process to match, while our extensive candidate network gives our clients access to top talent from across the United States. Whatever the industry or role, Lock Search is a dedicated partner to bring your company the skills you need on your team.
