Searchlight Capital Partners LP, a global private investment firm, has hired Amanda Good as partner and global head of value creation. Amanda is currently located in London, but will permanently relocate to the New York office in July of this year.
In this role, Good will lead the development of an internal team and approach to maximize value creation at Searchlight’s portfolio companies. Amanda and her team will work alongside Searchlight’s investment executives and portfolio management teams throughout the life of the firm’s investments, from entry to exit. Most recently she was a partner at Hg where she led the portfolio team.
Speaking on her appointment, Good said, “I have spent most of my career working on value creation plans and execution for private equity funds. The partnership with management teams to build long term value is what separates the best private equity funds from the rest of the pack. Searchlight’s portfolio presents an opportunity to work with a range of high-quality businesses across the U.S. and Europe, and I am excited for the challenge ahead.”
Oliver Haarmann, a founding partner of Searchlight, added, “As private equity owners, value creation is at the heart of what we do. We believe that Amanda has the skillset and experience to play an integral role in helping us amplify the value of our investments and reward our investors with excellent returns. We very much look forward to having her join our team.”
