After Aperion Management LLC, a New York-based middle-market private equity firm, acquired Tricon Works and Diamondback Works, it turned to BIC Recruiting to find a CEO to lead the blending of the businesses and assist in future acquisitions.BIC Recruiting placed Roger Gossett CEO

The search was a success, and Aperion hired Roger Gossett as CEO of Diamondback, Tricon Works and Tricon Holdings.

David Brady, managing director of Aperion Management, worked closely with BIC Recruiting in the hiring process.

“I would definitely recommend BIC Recruiting,” Brady said. “BIC was both patient and persistent about making the best match.”

“I have worked with BIC Recruiting many times in the past, so I was already familiar with them,” Gossett said. “Prior to my new role, I was working on buying a company that IVS Investment Banking was representing for sale. Unbeknownst to me, Aperion was also competing for that purchase. Simultaneously, Aperion engaged IVS’ sister company, BIC Recruiting, to hire somebody to take over their companies. Because of the BICIVS connection, the folks at BIC Recruiting were able to connect me with Aperion.

“The folks at BIC are well connected. I would highly recommend BIC and its group of companies based on their straightforward style and ethical approach to doing business.”
