Executive Succession Planning Consultants

Planning Your Next Future-Ready Leaders

Leadership changes happen. How you respond is critical to long-term company success.

What We Do

It’s no secret that executive succession planning is critical to shareholder value and long-term company success. Nearly half of companies today, however, couldn’t name a successor if the incumbent were to depart suddenly.


To create a clear picture of your strategy and culture, we interview board members and key stakeholders.

Set the Bar

Using your strategy and culture as the foundation, we craft the “Ideal” Candidate Profile,” a description of the right leader for the next five years.

Know Who You Know

Internal candidates are assessed against the ideal candidate profile using multiple data sources, including structured interviews, 360 references and personality and cognitive assessments.


To demonstrate how internal executives stack up against best-in class external talent, we look at potential future leaders from outside your organization.

Frame the Conversation

With a clear understanding of bench strength and the external talent available, we facilitate board discussion to align around the succession road map.
