Powerhouses in private equity: An interview with Permira's Tom Lister


Up close and personal with Tom Lister

In a wide-ranging video interview, Tom Lister, Permira's co-managing partner, shares with Don Lipari, RSM's national private equity leader, insights on the culture of the global firm, how sellers see Permira as a valuable partner, and how he has structured a successful leadership with his co–managing partner in London.

Under separate cover, Tom talks about his career at seminal private equity firm Forstmann Little, and about Ted Forstmann’s remarkable personality and investment philosophy as well as his firm's highly successful Hugo Boss investment, taking the men’s fashion company from the Great Recession to a strong return on investment.
