Our members’ thoughts

“The Private Funds CFO Network provides rich, deep content and events alongside a unique personal touch from the PEI team. I feel more engaged than ever and the Network creates noticeable value for my executive team.”

Equilibrium Capital

Michaela Gobel, CFO

“Peer to peer networking is essential for success. The industry has been very dynamic so just the SEC rule changes best practices are driven by the rest of us in the industry. So having those opportunities to get together regularly are vital for us to deal with particularly in an ever-changing environment.”

StartUp Health

Joshua Cherry-Soto, CFO & Partner

“Being in the CFO & COO type of roles in private equity is a very niche space. There’s a lot of problems that we face. Whether it be SEC related, regulatory related, portfolio company related, being able to speak about the problems that we face in a niche setting like this is very valuable to me.”

Kratos Capital

Steve Sims, CFO
