From The Chairman

A few words from Bill Achtmeyer

Thank you for your interest in The Parthenon Group. Our advisory business is thriving, with a diverse set of prominent corporate clients, and our industry-leading Private Equity Practice and Education Practice. Parthenon has long aimed to be the strategic advisor of choice for CEOs and business leaders worldwide by offering clients a steadfast commitment to life-long partnerships; a high-impact, customized approach; and a willingness to go at-risk for a portion of our fees.

My partners and I are committed to a measured growth strategy that will make Parthenon even stronger heading into the next decade – a truly global advisory boutique with a compelling business model that successfully mixes consulting and investing. This strategy has three components. First, we are significantly expanding our London, Mumbai and San Francisco offices to better serve clients’ needs around the world. Second, as we grow, we will retain our boutique philosophy to relationships. Our desire to maintain the highest level of dedication to our clients and to protect our entrepreneurial culture governs the pace of our expansion. Third, we regularly augment our cash fees with equity, success fees, or by taking prominent positions in investment vehicles, as we did with Parthenon Capital.

Parthenon’s successes, together with our goals for the future, create exciting career opportunities for a very select group of smart, nice and driven people. If you fit that description, we’d like to meet you.

Bill Achtmeyer
Chairman and Managing Partner
