Nick’s Private Equity Qualifications

Experience level: Vice President

10+ people coached for Private Equity

Nick has helped clients get into these companies:

I have over five years of experience working at a top-tier tech-focused private equity firm. Over my time at Francisco Partners I have been able to work on numerous platform investments, add-ons, financings and liquidity events for the firm. I have in-depth experience on what it takes to land a spot in this competitive industry having gone through the craziness of associate recruiting while working at Goldman Sachs, and then participating on the hiring side during my time at Francisco Partners. I have reviewed dozens of resumes for analyst and associate positions, conducted countless behavioral and technical interviews and been a part of hiring discussions and decision-making. I have also administered, reviewed and assessed candidates on LBO model tests and other technical case studies that are critical to landing a job. I also know what it takes to be a successful investor at the junior level, having navigated a competitive and challenging promotion to Vice President. I am excited to be able to share some of my experience with you and help you as you navigate this challenging industry.

About Nick

Hey! My name is Nick and while I am originally from the east coast, I have lived and worked in San Francisco for the last 7+ years. When I am not working or coaching I love to play basketball, golf, and explore San Francisco while chasing down my tireless toddler. I started my career in tech investment banking and then have worked for the last 5+ years in tech private equity.My approach to coaching is collaborative and flexible - we can find exactly what is the right approach for you so you get the most out of our time together. Reach out and let's see together how I can help you figure out the next step in your career!

Why do I coach?

I would never have made it where I did in my professional career without the mentorship and coaching of those that have been through the same experiences. It doesn't matter how much work you put into preparing for private equity if you don't understand how the game works. I hope I can find those that deserve to an opportunity and help them reach their full potential.
