Founded in 1997, Lois L. Lindauer Searches (“Lindauer” or the “Company”) is a leading national executive search firm serving the nonprofit sector. Lindauer specializes in recruiting nonprofit leaders and their teams for premier institutions in education, healthcare, the arts and sciences, and mission-driven advocacy organizations. The Company places more advancement and development professionals than any other search firm. Lindauer is headquartered in Boston, MA and serves clients around the world.
With a strong management team in place, including the appointment of Deb Taft as CEO in 2017, the client sought a transaction to transition ownership to the management team and attract an experienced, well-regarded investment partner to support the CEO and management team as they execute on the Company’s growth strategy.
G2 Capital Advisors, LLC (“G2”) served as the exclusive financial advisor to Lindauer, responsible for running a high touch search for an investment partner for management.
The transaction was successfully executed through a management led buyout supported by Gemini Investors (“Gemini”), a private investment firm that invests in smaller middle market businesses. Gemini will support the Company’s growth initiatives of further expanding the search team and pursuing acquisitions of complementary businesses.
