US private equity professional association launches

The Private Equity Principal Group (PEPG), a professional association designed for individuals at the principal and vice president levels within private equity firms, has launched in the US.

The association was developed as a resource to provide members with the skills and resources necessary to take the next step in their careers.
“We began to see that there was not enough training and education for young professionals in the private equity space. PEPG’s goal is help provide the education, training, and connections necessary for principals’ path to partnership,” says Neil C Krauter, chairman of the PEPG board of directors.
PEPG provides networking opportunities, educational seminars focusing on real industry issues, and access to a progressive knowledge sharing platform. PEPG members have access to a wealth of information via PEPG’s digital discussion platform. The forum allows members to create a profile, seek exclusive peer-to-peer advice, search a variety of industry topics, review job postings, and participate in ongoing discussions. The PEPG forum is only open to members and requires a password to gain access. There will also be an invitation only level of membership that grants access to special events and sponsors.
“With the launch of PEPG, we have an opportunity to strengthen the private equity industry and provide networking and growth opportunities for principals as they prepare to become general partners. I am honoured to serve on the PEPG board and participate in this much needed organisation,” says Ben Geiger, general partner at Freeman Spogli & Co.
Membership is open to principal, VP and other post MBA level executives at private equity funds. There is no cost to join, however an application process is required.
