Not an easy transition, but there are several paths. 1) Work directly for a portfolio company. 2) Executing Ops role at large PE, doing lean and consulting at Portfolio Co’s. 3) Sr Expert corporate role to work with Portfolio Co leaders. Each has very different responsibilities and entry points.

Thanks - I’m looking more towards #2. Do you have experience in this space?

Have some friends that took roles like #2. They have enjoyed the roles. Mainly focused on cost optimization, leveraging lean methods, ZBB and others. Pay similar to consulting, with progression to carry based on performance and value creation.

I would start with Charles Aris and the other main headhunters for transitioning consultants. I would say my experience has been different than B1, comp should be meaningfully higher at every level
