Joe Hensley brings a tremendous wealth of experience and insight that spans the C-suite in a way rarely seen from other executive leaders. He has been responsible not only for the growth of businesses both public and private, many of which are household names, but for the development of internal talent within the many organizations he has served. Such ability to effect organic growth and lead optimized initiatives throughout the lifespan of transactions is undoubtedly valuable to Hardesty and our many Private Equity clients.

Alongside his strong management, finance, sales, and operating skills, Joe has notable capability for stabilizing companies at critical periods, as well as preparing them for sale and shepherding them through the sales process. From family-owned businesses to national-scale enterprises such as Fiserv, he has managed successful transactions from $20M to $600M. Joe has an outstanding track record of strategic development, achieving organizational goals and maximizing shareholder value.

Joe began his career with EY where he was a partner. He served clients in Phoenix, Dallas and the firm’s national office (New York).

Joe received a Bachelor of Business Administration, with honors, from the University of Texas at Austin.
