invest with conviction

We enhance the investment returns of our private equity clients through partnerships that build their executive networks. Our comprehensive understanding of M&A’s human capital needs, combined with our ability to deliver exceptional advisors, guides the decision to invest or walk.

The world of private equity is increasingly competitive.  Firms are challenged to do more with limited resources. This is where Apex Leaders can help.

Apex Leaders is a private equity-centric human capital firm focused on building on-demand advisory teams of former CEOs and industry leaders on a deal-by-deal basis.

The firm successfully executes over 350 engagements annually across a wide range of industries, exercising our creativity and tenacity every step of the way. We believe thoughtful human relationships are a prerequisite for out-performance and seek to partner with firms who share this belief.

Founded in 2009 and based in beautiful Boise, Idaho, Apex Leaders has built a culture based on the dual premise of always putting our clients first and taking good care of our employees.
