Our professional services firm model provides private equity firms and their portfolio companies with solutions delivered by experienced operational executives who perform many functions and services including:
Interim Executive Leadership & Controllership Services
We manage all or part of the CEO, CHRO, COO, CFO, CIO or CMO function in an interim role or as a leadership support function for key projects or initiatives.
We deliver immediate impact. As you gauge the “fit” of our interim executive, there is the option of converting to a permanent hire.
We assess financial, operational, and technology readiness for scale. We also complement your leadership and management teams during periods of high growth and stretched capabilities.
We effectively execute strategic initiatives, including: operational, profit, and cashflow improvements; risk management; recapitalizations; and KPI and financial systems implementations and adoption.
M&A Leadership or Support
We define and execute strategies for M&A and strategic partnering, due diligence and deal process management, integration planning and execution, and business unit divestitures.
Our CROs provide cashflow-focused CFO and Controller expertise to quickly restructure operations—rapidly assessing and implementing the changes needed to right the ship.
Things happen. We manage, fix, or shutdown troubled or runaway projects. Stop the bleeding today.
Exit Preparation and Execution
We provide experienced leadership or support focused on enhancing value drivers leading up to an exit, and transaction readiness and coordination so management can remain focused on hitting its numbers.
Our portfolio company, LabConnect, needed to strengthen its financial function to support rapid growth. NextLevel was able to quickly and efficiently assess the situation, determine needed improvements and provide leadership to help the company execute on the recommended initiatives. Its analysis was insightful and spot on. We highly recommend NextLevel.
– John D. Stobo, Jr., Managing General Partner, ABS Capital Partners
One of our portfolio companies needed a seasoned interim CFO to provide leadership and a smooth transition while we conducted a search for a full-time CFO. NextLevel exceeded our expectations and provided us with a professional, hardworking and thorough executive who did a tremendous job. Our entire investment team was very impressed with NextLevel’s process as well as their commitment and regular communication with us. Our firm highly recommends NextLevel.
– Christina Miller, Principal Northwest Equity Partners
We had a situation where a portfolio company was splitting a business unit off and preparing for a sale. Both activities were highly successful. Throughout this critical period NextLevel played a key role in supporting the company’s CEO with interim financial leadership. We highly value how they partnered with us in accomplishing our objectives.
