About Kingfish Group

Kingfish is a different kind of private equity firm. We have pioneered a new approach to private equity investing that places us at the intersection of people, ideas and capital. At the core of our efforts are deep, systematic relationships with proven operating executives. Our firm comprises two core business segments; our private equity investment business and an advisory business that supports a limited set of high-performing PE sponsors as they identify, invest in and grow businesses. Our philosophy is to find the best people and give them the freedom to learn, innovate and outperform. In that spirit, we are structured to ensure that each individual contributes substantially to firm strategy and goals, and there is extensive feedback on performance. We pride ourselves on assembling high-performing teams to pursue inspiring goals.

The application of this philosophy has extended the Kingfish platform into the creation of a formal executive recruiting team. This team was built from the momentum and market need to further extend advisory and diligence service into full-time C-suite placements and alignment of outside board members and chairpersons. The Executive Recruiting (ER) team is composed of senior recruiters in the US & India, supported by a research team based in India.
