Middle Market Growth Editor Kathryn Mulligan Sits Down with Trish Gilbert to Discuss the Increased Focus on Talent Management in the Middle Market

Chicago, IL, May 22, 2018 — Chief Talent Officer, Trish Gilbert, of Wind Point Partners spoke with Middle Market Growth Editor Kathryn Mulligan about the increased focus on talent at middle-market private equity firms, along with the characteristics she looks for when evaluating potential leaders, Wind Point’s process for CEO selection, and how the firm builds relationships for the long term.

Traditionally, talent management has been handled by investment professionals within private equity firms. Gilbert says roles like hers are becoming increasingly common at PE firms, which are looking more closely at human capital.

At Wind Point, she works alongside the firm’s managing directors to enhance and strengthen relationships with portfolio company leaders and to build out a pipeline of talent for the future.
