A Customized Long-Term Boardroom Approach
for Enhanced Performance
There is no more powerful combination -- or one more fundamental to the success of any enterprise -- than the successful partnership between a CEO and a strong, independent board that can provide oversight and serve as both advisor and strategic arsenal.
Our clients today face unprecedented challenges in the marketplace. Never before has board performance and accountability been under such intense scrutiny by a range of stakeholders, including institutional investors, regulators and employees. This is coupled with significant disruption and transformation driven by volatility, complexity and speed in global markets. Boards need to offer more than just compliance oversight. Boards today must assure leadership talent, ensure an excellent focus on strategy and performance, and build a strong board culture to position CEOs and their companies for long-term success.
When built effectively and run efficiently, corporate boards are a strategic asset and a source of continuous competitive advantage. And when paired with a smart, forward-thinking CEO who communicates well, manages people and understands and facilitates corporate strategy, the combination is unstoppable.
Our CEO search capabilities meet a broad range of client needs, covering numerous industries and specialised requirements, as well as geographic areas. The search is led by a local partner in one of our sector-specific practices with a track record of successful CEO placements. An experienced support team draws on the firm’s vast global resources, including specialist colleagues.
For maximum impact, we aim to partner with our clients in all aspects of the CEO leadership journey. That journey begins by aligning with your board regarding the company's future transformational needs and CEO requirements. We then help you build a compelling internal pipeline of senior leaders with CEO potential by identifying, assessing, and advising them on their development journey. This process builds a strong top team and helps create support for the selected CEO. Working with our own global industry practices, we have access to the best external candidates. We assess them based on the same robust and comprehensive methodology that we use with internal candidates.
Our approach enables us to respond with a rapid and deep understanding of your needs.
Our approach to board search is based on a thorough understanding of the strategic, cultural, financial and operational issues our clients face. Our search engagements are targeted and focused on the specific requirements of the position including industry and functional experience, skills, competencies, cultural fit, and leadership style.
Our board search process is rigorous. We take a disciplined and structured approach to identifying potential candidates that meet the position requirements including subject-matter, functional and regional expertise. We use years of high-level professional networking both in Ireland and Globally, industry knowledge and internal research resources to achieve results in every executive search assignment.
