Skin in the Game: No Longer Just a C-Level Employee by Jim Gilreath is an extremely well written, documented and organized book which should be a 'must read' for anyone either seeking a senior level employee or seeking an executive, skin in the game, position in a middle market private equity company. His painstakingly thorough process of identifying, verifying and evaluating each candidate is the definition of due diligence. L. Willey
