Kingfish is a different kind of private equity firm, building companies in close partnership with top industry executives. We have pioneered a new approach to direct private equity investing that places us at the intersection of people, ideas and capital. We work in partnership with targeted executives and a limited set of high-performing PE sponsors to identify, invest in and grow great businesses. At the core of our efforts are deep, systematic relationships with proven operating executives. We have built a proprietary platform that enables us to cultivate relationships with top executives in a systematic, large-scale and highly targeted manner.
Our philosophy is to find the best people and give them the freedom to learn, innovate and outperform. In that spirit, we are structured to ensure that each individual contributes substantively to firm strategy and goals, and there is extensive feedback on performance. Authority is decentralized and performance is rewarded based on achievement of goals. We pride ourselves on assembling high-performing teams to pursue inspiring goals.
Kingfish is a unique place that demands extraordinary tenacity, confidence, intellectual curiosity, and strong communications skills. If this describes you and the environment you thrive in, email us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
