With a portfolio of 90 growing companies, each with at least one Non-Executive on their board bringing strategic expertise to the management teams, we’re always looking to expand our network.
Many of our Non-Executives hold positions at multiple LDC portfolio companies and have been working with us for many years. We also call on The LDC Network to recommend ambitious management teams for LDC to back, as well as to help us evaluate potential investment opportunities.
One of the challenges for people who are not ready to stop working but don’t want to be a full-time CEO or Chair is what to do next. Working alongside LDC and helping firms avoid the mistakes I’ve made is really satisfying.”
