Representation for Women in M&A
Sep 11, 2020
On this week’s episode of M&A Masters, the show was joined by special guest Heather Hubbard, Managing Partner of Valesco Industries, a lower-middle market firm based in Dallas, Texas. This past May, Heather was named D CEO’s Private Equity Investment Professional of the Year, and in a market like Texas, that’s no small achievement.
“I think, coming in, we represent what we’re oftentimes looking at in portfolio companies and potential prospects. There’s a very diverse group of people working at the majority of these companies, so when we can reflect that back to them, and relate to them each in their own way, I think that it gives us an advantage,” says Heather about the unique perspective of women in M&A.
M&A Masters chats about Heather’s journey from running a company to private equity, as well as:

- Team dynamics with women in M&A
- Why women are underrepresented in private equity
