Private Equity Support

PDA has launched a Private Equity Initiative to support PE firms with board formation, recruiting, and governance. Additionally the PDA provides other board support services that may be of interest to private equity firms and their portfolio companies.  Here is the PDA Value Proposition for private boards and owners.

The Private Directors Association® (PDA) is committed to advancing private company governance through resources, education and networking. 

PDA's complimentary, non-exclusive posting service for fiduciary and advisory board director roles is a valuable resource for private companies, their boards, and the organizations who serve them (e.g., recruiters, accountants, lawyers, consultants).  

This capability offers both named and blinded postings for companies and service firms. PDA’s dedicated team works with organizations to refine postings to attract those members most qualified to serve. If you’d like to speak with one of our team members about a possible posting, please contact the administrator.

Below are example testimonials from private companies that have used our board position posting services

"I was initially struggling to find experienced executives to join the board of Lake Point Healthcare – until I found PDA. After posting my board positions I was inundated with applications of exceptionally high quality executives from all over the USA. PDA exceeded my expectation in every way possible. With their assistance I was able to assemble an elite level group of directors to take my company to the next level and beyond."  - Dan Blackburn, Owner, Lake Point Assisted Living, Frisco, TX

"We posted two advisory board positions with the PDA in early November. In less than 3 weeks we’ve gotten submissions from almost 50 highly qualified candidates.  The caliber of all of the candidates is very good and many are extraordinarily well qualified for these positions that have very specific requirements. This is a first advisory board for a relatively young company so I wasn’t sure of how much interest there would be. I’m frankly more than pleasantly surprised. I’d say blown away is more accurate. The hardest part of this process will be how to narrow this amazing group to a reasonable number to interview." - Lead Director, Real Estate Development Company
