CEO and COO Executive Search

In today’s increasingly fast-paced business world, an organization’s needs may shift suddenly, and the entire pool of candidates identified by its succession plan may become irrelevant. To recruit for and fill the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) or Chief Operating Officer (COO) seat, companies tend to plan for these leadership roles without always anticipating what they will look like or how they will evolve in the future.

In order for companies to grow in a complex and uncertain global environment, and to battle their competition and capitalize on ever-changing modern technology, they must find CEOs and COOs with more than just stellar resumes. Today’s CEO or COO requires the technical skills and strategic foresight to effectively seize technological, regulatory and economic opportunities. These skills must be combined with the ability to engage and inspire stakeholders at all levels across the business: from board members and a culturally diverse workforce to consumers and the media.

At Frederickson Partners, we understand that bringing on a CEO or COO is a risky hiring decision. Whether your organization has an immediate CEO search or COO search, or you are looking for an ongoing partnership to build out your executive team, together we can ensure you accomplish your goals with the leaders your business deserves.
