March Placement of the Month: From Public to Private Sector

Our Client

In March, we highlighted a Chief Investment Officer who came to us when her position with a major pension fund had become too overbearing. Looking for a change, she wanted to join a private fund — and if the position could be in a warm climate with a lower state income tax, all the better.

Despite having a strong network of professional and personal references, she was having trouble identifying opportunities because of her network's relationship with the pension fund where she still worked. And while her professional experience and track record were impressive, her resume also needed work.

Our Solution

  • We engaged our extensive networks and industry-leading databases, positioning our client to appeal to leaders at the top private funds located on her list of desired states. 

  • Based on our outreach and marketing of our client, we were able to quickly present her with viable interview opportunities versus aimless network conversations. 

  • As part of our one-of-a-kind Executive Marketing program, we coached our client on how to effectively convey her background and career trajectory in interviews and how to handle those tough-to-answer questions about why she was looking to transition roles.


Today, our client is happily managing a private fund for a firm with a long-term investment strategy. Most importantly, she transitioned away from the microscope of working for a public firm, lives in a desirable warm climate and eliminated her state income tax burden.
