Leadership Specialists

Leadership expertise for private equity, portfolio companies & management teams

Pre & Post Deal

We offer our clients the smartest insights on their potential & current leadership teams to help drive maximum returns. Our insights are derived from Drax’s role as the leading executive recruiter for private equity invested companies, heavily supported by our proprietary data platform drxDigital.

We support our clients with access, insights & opportunities to deal advisors, leadership development, & management teams. In a results driven environment our passion is leadership.


Leadership teams within private equity backed company environments often don’t require any more motivation to succeed. Our support is grounded in practical actions that individuals & teams can own.

Our capabilities are a blend from the best of psychology with actual leadership experience within a PE backed company. Authenticity is core to the situations in which we support.



We believe upper quartile exits occur when leadership is equal to the opportunity. But these are dynamic factors both capable of significant challenge & chance.

An exit is a hard data point measuring the effectiveness of the leadership team; it also presents a unique occasion to work towards a shared tangible future objective.
