The Lancer Group are experts in executive search for C-Suite executives, Operating Partners and Boards.

We offer value-creation services focused on pre-deal, executive assessments and high-quality previously PE-backed diversity candidates.


The Lancer Group is a boutique executive search and human capital consultancy focused on providing our private equity clients and their portfolio companies direct access to the top leaders in their industries.

We are the domain experts in software and tech enabled services – since our inception in 1998 we have extensively mapped out 100s of verticals in the space. We know the landscape, the companies and have tracked executives through multiple positions.

In addition to executive search, we offer value-creation services across pre-deal, executive assessments and PE diversity candidates.



Our executive assessments can provide deeper insight into the behaviors, motivations, and skills of our candidates. An optional resource, these provide an additional layer of insight beyond resumes, interviews, and references to de-risk hires.
