What’s new?
We have made great strides in expanding Levine Leichtman’s European presence. We are in the process of raising our second European fund and have opened a new office in Stockholm. We have also continued to expand our reach in areas where we already have an established presence, adding new professionals in The Hague and London as well as moving to a larger location in London to accommodate growth. I am excited about our future in Europe where we are positioned for continued success.

How are you advancing the state of women?
Levine Leichtman is one of the few women-led firms in private equity, and we are proud of the contributions that women are making in different areas of our firm. We value a diverse team and appreciate the contributions that women and professionals with different backgrounds make. We also work hard to ensure that they continue to grow and develop as part of our firm. We now have nine new equity partners in the firm, and promoted a number of professionals to various leadership positions. We are very focused on the continued development of our team and finding opportunities for professionals at all levels to assume increasing responsibility.
