Choosing a new CEO is the single most important role of any board of directors. It can present a host of challenges for the board, but none that are unsurmountable. At FCCS, we have found that building a robust structure around the CEO Selection process removes intuition and complements the experience level of each board director.
We combine a data-driven approach with key areas of “fit” that the directors are looking for, assuring the board feels comfortable making this decision. This all adds up to a process that is systematic, thorough, timely and cost-sensitive.
FCCS has helped numerous clients conduct a robust search, helping boards identify the best possible CEO candidate to successfully manage through their organization’s specific challenges, goals and culture. FCCS serves as a guide through the selection process, leaving all decisions to the board and adjusting the process itself to meet specific requirements or requests from the board.
