2022 Year in Review

Resilience and opportunity

Throughout 2022, we were challenged by a rapidly changing macroeconomic environment and uncertainty in the global markets. Despite this volatility, TA has remained focused on executing our long-held investment strategy. Established and tested over more than five decades, our strategy is built on a foundation of discipline, clarity and resiliency – all of which TA, and most importantly, our team members, have exemplified in 2022.

With 2023 underway, we extend our thanks to our portfolio companies, operating advisors and partners for your continued support and trust in TA. We are proud to share a selection of achievements and developments from TA and our portfolio companies over the past year, and look forward to embracing the opportunities ahead.

Empowering Portfolio Companies

TA hosts events year-round to support our portfolio companies in their continued growth journeys. These in-person and virtual gatherings allow management teams and senior leaders to network and learn from both peers and industry practitioners. Over the past year, our cross-portfolio events, highlighted below, have had a combined participation of more than 900 professionals.

  • Our third Global CFO Conference in Washington, D.C. gathered CFOs and senior finance leaders from our portfolio companies for curated speakers, guided breakout groups and networking.

  • Our Inaugural Portfolio M&A Conference brought together executives from the TA network for sessions on driving value and accelerating growth through strategic acquisitions.

  • Six Virtual Roundtables hosted by TA offered valuable insights from subject matter experts on timely topics, including data-driven marketing, DE&I and women's leadership.

Developing Our Team

TA is powered by our people and, in 2022, we continued to invest in our team by hiring and developing exceptional talent across the Firm. Notably, we expanded our senior leadership team with the appointments of Jennifer Barbetta as Chief Operating Officer and Lori Stachelski as Chief Talent Officer, and the promotion of Darlene Karis to Global Head of Human Resources.

We are pleased to feature our 2022 senior investment team, Strategic Resource Group and Capital Markets Group new hires; and recent, well-earned staff promotions.
