Deal Type:
  • Software
  • Technology and Consulting Services

JEGI CLARITY has advised ZRG Partners, an executive search firm, in a recapitalization transaction led by RFE Investment Partners.

ZRG Partners is a progressive, mid-sized global executive search firm with a 20-year track record of helping its clients acquire top talent globally. ZRG Partners is recognized as one of the fastest growing executive search firms in the world driven by their client focused approach grounded in technology and innovation. ZRG’s current capital partner, Northcreek Mezzanine, is successfully exiting their investment after four years. During this period, ZRG has experienced a compound annual growth rate exceeding 38%.

The human capital services market is rapidly growing and ripe for disruption. ZRG continues to outgrow the broader market based on the right combination of expert advisory services supported by innovative technology. As a new platform investment, RFE is uniquely positioned to assist ZRG in aggressively expanding their service offerings through continued hiring, key acquisitions and technology development support.

Working with JEGI CLARITY in our recap was an outstanding experience. The team was responsive, was able to quickly provide value add in our thinking around capital and valuation and then executed our process quite well. It’s great to have a banker that has the courage to challenge a business to think outside the box and stretch but always have the shareholders interest at heart through the process. We look forward to working with JEGI CLARITY again in the next chapters of our journey.

Larry Hartmann, CEO, ZRG Partners
