PE Industry Group’s Video Campaign to Counter Criticism


April 26, 2012

The Private Equity Growth Capital Council is showing the “softer side” of the buyout industry in a series of promotional videos, reports the NY Times.

The reason the promotional PR is underway is to counter damage to PE’s image as a result of the presidential election campaign by attacks on Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital.
