Welcome to Capital Call, a series of podcasts produced by Boyden’s PE/VC practice group of conversations with leading PE/VC firms from around the globe.
In this episode, Vladimir Lasocki from Carlyle Europe shares with us how recruitment and HR matters have become more important, why communication and culture are critical skills for CEOs in crisis situations and how Chief People Officers and Chief Digital/Information Officers have gained in importance. On the PE side, large firms with resources and skillsets across multiple geographies can mobilize their teams to overcome the pandemic constraints. This environment creates new M&A opportunities to focus on portfolio companies’ add-ons and to unlock value creation.
In this first of three episodes, Managing Partners Anita Pouplard from Boyden France and Partner David Law Man Co from Boyden China speak with Cecilia Chao, Managing Director at Bain Capital Double Impact about making investments in a challenging environment and launching the Double Impact fund.
