Team

Executive Buildout

“Without Serent's support we would not have been able to create a scalable team that has been able to take C2 from a strong regional educational provider to a national brand that is delivering on our mission of educating kids across the US”

David Kim, CEO C2 Education

SERENT INVESTMENT TEAM

Description

C2 is a leading provider of academic and test prep tutoring for high school and middle school students. At time of investment C2 had no senior team outside of the founder CEO and with nearly 60 corporate locations it becoming un-manageable.

Actions

  • Serent assisted Founder & CEO David Kim to interview and hire a full executive team over the first 3 years of the investment
  • These executives included a CFO, COO, VP Ops, Dir. Of Marketing, Dir. Of HR, and CTO

Outcomes

The expanded team enabled the company to scale effectively and move from 5 store openings in 2012 to 30+ annually
