Private Equity

The Elliot Group initially sourced and secured talent for private equity partners who fueled the growth of the restaurant industry over twenty years ago.

Today, the Elliot Group continues to enjoy strategic partnerships within the financial community across the broader hospitality and retail industries, in addition to our restaurant foundation.

We advise our private equity clients in all areas of human capital within their portfolio companies. We offer an educated and unbiased view of the competitive landscape of executives benchmarked against internal talent to assist clients in planning for long-term succession to maximize shareholder value.

The Elliot Group partners with owners and founders to develop creative solutions specific to the needs of each client, whether they seek growth, turnaround, or repositioning expertise. Understanding the investment thesis of our equity clients, along with the unique needs of specific brands, enables us to match talent across multiple functions that results in not only a strong return on investment, but also in stronger partnerships between our clients and their management teams.

We are uniquely qualified and understand the subtle changes organizations face through all phases of a company’s lifecycle.
