He will also work alongside firm leadership to help develop and lead growth strategies for the practice. Jackson brings more than two decades of experience and practical perspectives that will aid in the design and implementation of pragmatic, scalable solutions that simultaneously mitigate risk and drive enterprise value creation.
“It’s critical in today’s world for private equity to successfully deliver on value creation strategies across the portfolio in order to generate their desired investment returns,” said Chris Clapp, Private Equity Lead at CrossCountry Consulting. “Jackson’s proven experience delivering operational enhancements across the investment lifecycle of portfolio companies will make him an invaluable partner to our private equity clients.”
