You might not think that St. Louis is a hotbed for Private Equity.

You’d be wrong.

I tracked down Stacy Schlenk. She heads up talent acquisition & onboarding for HBM Holdings, which acquires, builds, and operates middle-market businesses.

HBM acquires majority positions in product-centric companies in Aerospace & Defense, Environmental, Medical Devices & Instruments, and Packaging.

Its middle-market specialty manufacturing businesses generate $50M to $400M in annual revenue and together employ 2,000 people.

Stacy leads due diligence & talent development for HBM and its portfolio companies.

In this 20-minute conversation, she reveals the common mistakes that business leaders make in hiring & building teams. And how you can do it the right way… even if you’re not in Manufacturing.
