CEO Succession Planning
In recent surveys of boards across the United States, CEO succession planning was consistently rated as the area where most directors felt they could do a better job.

We have the tools and expertise to make that happen.

CEO Succession Plan
•Followed up development of a comprehensive CEO succession plan for a Fortune 500 board with the design of a rigorous due diligence process to assess internal candidates for a key position that formed part of their long-term CEO succession plan. This exercise gave board members far greater insights about their internal candidates - and ultimately greater confidence in their decision.

• Created an emergency CEO succession plan for the board of a private company with a new CEO.

• Developed a long-term CEO succession plan for a midcap financial services company that engaged all board members and senior executives in establishing both criteria and a process tailored to the company.
Most Boards have 3 major objectives when it comes to CEO Succession Planning:

1) Making the right choice about the next CEO - every director knows that the choice of CEO is probably the single most important decision he/she will make as a member of that board.

2)
Avoiding fallout - they don't want succession planning to become a "de-stabilizing event" within the company.

3)
Proper due diligence - ensuring the succession plan has the rigor needed to fulfill the board's obligations to shareholders and provide directors with confidence about their process and their choice.
