Private equity awards energized by crack Icebreaker Team

The Icebreaker team networked into the early hours (!) to meet and qualify their shortlist of Corporate Finance partnerships who have shared significant interest in outsourcing their ROI recovery / retention activity using the Icebreaker Solution on a flexible retainer basis.  The overwhelming feedback from the industry’s most respected dealmakers, advisers and bankers was that the Icebreaker Solution is ideally aligned with the needs of the private equity market and forms a seamless, more robust, effective and simpler alternative to traditional consultancy, solitary interim managers or agency approaches.  In addition, our partners appreciated that engaging with Icebreaker enabled them to reduce the complexity of managing their vast pools of independent resource.  Over the next few weeks we expect to finalise our shortlist of key corporate finance relationships and are working now to identify our priority projects to get started on.  To get more on our vision and how we differentiate ourselves from consultants and interim providers click…here.
