Apex Leaders connects experienced advisors to private equity investors

When private equity firms are faced with complex investment decisions, they turn to Apex Leaders to identify former executives and industry leaders with specific experience who can help them make informed investment decisions.

Our advisors help clients decide whether to invest or walk.

Engagements range from brief phone calls designed to shine light on investors’ blind spots to long-term partnerships where advisors help investors navigate the nuances of deal. Advisors also help clients post-transaction by serving on Boards or advising their portfolio companies.

I have performed advisory work for a few firms, but I find your process very user-friendly compared to others. I look forward to helping where I can add value.

Apex Leaders is not an expert network

We don’t keep advisors on a roster and lend them out to clients. We listen to our clients’ needs on each engagement, then identify the advisors who have the skills and knowledge to meet those needs. Once we make the connection, we step away — the relationship is yours to build and grow.
