Meet Our April Placement: From Wall Street to Hometown


Our Client

This month, we’re highlighting a private equity Managing Director who came to 20/20 Foresight Executive Marketing when he was finding it difficult to discover a position in his hometown that was on par with his Wall Street credentials that he had worked extremely hard throughout his career to attain. Looking for a change, he wanted to join a respected private equity firm, namely, one with a track record of excellence on the buy side — and that was located close to home.

Despite having numerous personal connections, he was having trouble reaching firms that could afford someone of his professional stature. While his "street cred" expertise and Big Ten education were impressive, his local network needed a boost because he had not lived in his hometown in 20 years.

Our Solution

  • We tapped into our vast network of financial companies, connecting with the right industry leaders and positioning our client's impressive background to appeal to hiring professionals he previously didn't know existed.

  • We zeroed in on the esteemed private equity firms that fit his criteria, refining our search so that he was enthusiastic about the opportunities we presented to him and well-prepared for the interviewing process.


In just a few short months, our client was hired with a firm he was excited about. He didn't have to sacrifice on his compensation package due to his long-term equity plan offered. Best of all, he escaped the big city and returned home.

The 20/20 Foresight Executive Search team knows inherently that quality counts over quantity when it comes to finding the ideal position. We will consult with you to understand what components — from company reputation to the office address — that matter most to you.
