VP Content Innovation

We are on a mission to change the way private equity firms and their leadership teams create value.  We want the right rock star to help lead that metamorphosis. 

PURPOSE & RESPONSIBILITIES                                                                 

The newly created position of VP of Content Innovation will serve as a catalyst in the design/build/scale of our core.  This Principal-level role reports directly to, and works closely with, the firm’s Partners.  As with all Principals at our firm, this role will have an opportunity to be named a Partner over time, and ultimately vest into equity ownership as we scale this exciting business together.

VISION                                                                     

Over the next 3 to 5 years, the VP of Content Innovation will play a mission critical role in:

  • Building Falcon CEO and, separately, Falcon CFO into distinct, invite-only, professional communities each populated with greater than 5,000 actively engaged members.  These communities will be powered by an arsenal of content, including, but not limited to:
    • Technical white papers that accelerate leadership performance and tactical execution
    • Weekly podcast episodes discussing the prevailing issues and opportunities facing the private equity-backed middle market
    • Video production spanning a variety of topics
    • Various media depicting the firm’s thought leadership and trend predictions
    • Other initiatives which will be determined in collaboration with the newly hired VP of Content Innovation
  • Conceiving, launching and scaling various lines of business that leverage the power of these distinct Falcon communities including but not limited to:
    • Pre-acquisition human capital due diligence
    • Behavioral and leadership assessment
    • Learning Management System designed to accelerate CEO and CFO on-the-job performance
    • Fractional Talent Management for private equity firms
    • SaaS-based solution designed to amplify a middle market company’s Horsepower Quotient (HQ)
    • Annual Falcon CEO and Falcon CFO conferences
  • Becoming the undisputed authority on private equity-backed middle market trends, reports and surveys.  The eventual crowning achievement here will be the quarterly Falcon Mid-Market Confidence Index that will have the power to move markets.
  • Other trailblazing outcomes that are currently on the drawing board and others that have yet to be fully articulated.
