PE After the Pandemic: A Return to Normalcy – Or Not?

After the pandemic the global economy is expected to come roaring back. What should PE-backed executives expect from this pivotal moment?

Last year was unlike anything in living memory. For better or worse, industries were shaken and ruling paradigms busted. Now economists are predicting an economic boom for 2021, and the jury is still out on whether we’ll see accelerating inflation in the next eighteen to twenty-four months.

Falcon Partner Lindsay Guzowski and her guests Nathan McBrayer discussed where private equity-backed companies are headed in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Watch the panel from Wednesday May 26, 2021 here.

The panel covered:

  • How the pandemic changed the PE-backed CFO’s job
  • What CFOs learned and their emerging roles
  • How the pandemic sped up the adoption of new, more efficient ways of doing business
  • The impact of the massive shift to remote work
