Board & CEO Advisory Group

CEO Succession, Board effectiveness & strategic advisory

 



After working with the Board through a successful CEO succession process, the Board wanted to do an in-depth assessment with the goal of building a world-class Board. The former CEO did not have a strong relationship with the family owners and thus they focused on clearly defining roles and implementing sustainable processes to have a higher level of impact to become a high-performing Board.
