Eye On Industry – Episode 5: The ‘Remote-ification’ of Value Creation – Part I

The digitization of operations at middle market industrial companies, which was well under way before the arrival of COVID-19, has only been hastened by the pandemic. Particularly important has been the ability to now conduct and manage a greater number of operations and functions remotely. 

In this special two-part series of IE Eye on Industry, we’ve invited principals from AlixPartners to discuss the wide-ranging impact of “remote-ification” on production, supply chains, marketing,  and financial performance in the middle-market industrial sector.

Management Consultants have always been a key partner, and oftentimes “an  agent of change” for Private Equity investors and their portfolio companies. 

On today’s episode, we are going to take a look at how the working relationship and core functions of the advisory business have changed in light of the “new norm” brought on by the pandemic. 

To kick off the series, we’ve asked Marc Iampieri and Parmesh Bhaskaran from AlixPartners to provide an insider’s view of how COVID-19 has impacted the core advisory services they offer to PE investors and manufacturing companies: from due diligence and cash flow modeling to turnaround and M&A work. 

Between them both they have over 40 years of experience of management consulting work for complex supply chain, manufacturing and distribution intensive companies.

They are both Managing Directors in the Operations Practice where they partner with PE investors and manufacturing businesses to drive operational improvements.

We’re excited to have Marc and Parmesh join us today.
