Timur Colak founded T-CEO in 2020 to help private equity firms fill leadership gaps in their portfolio companies. A T-CEO professional serves as a board member, interim CEO, other interim C-Level executive, or manager of strategic projects. The secret sauce lies in the breadth and depth of experience across many industries worldwide combined with the ability to quickly form trusting relationships to jointly create and execute a plan of action yielding significant increases in EBITDA and enterprise value. This process of harnessing collective intelligence to provide strategic direction and leadership creates a transformation from small to large or poorly performing to high-achieving companies. Clients range from large cap to lower middle market focused private equity firms with portfolio companies in industrial B2B, distribution, and consumer products.
