Digging deeper into disruption's impacts—and implications for leaders

For nine consecutive years now, AlixPartners has monitored the most-significant trends and developments affecting private equity (PE) leadership, through our annual survey of PE firms and portfolio companies (portcos), conducted jointly with Vardis. Each year, findings from the AlixPartners PE Leadership Survey deliver valuable insights on themes relevant to the success of PE investments.

This year’s survey was administered online from October through December 2023. Respondents consisted of 129 PE firm managing directors, operating partners or founders, and 56 portfolio company (portco) directors, the majority of whom are CEOs or CFOs.
