CEO Succession

When it comes time for a change in executive leadership, the stakes could not be higher. Your company's vision, effectiveness, and bottom line depend heavily on the quality of your Chief Executive Officer. We ensure your organization selects and prepares the ideal CEO to propel future growth.

CEO Succession Planning

One of the most business-critical decisions you can make is selecting the next person who will lead your company: the CEO.

Finding the right person for this position involves a wide range of questions. Do we have at least one or more potential successor candidates and are they ready Should we promote from within or look outside?  Do we have a good understanding of the traits and competencies needed in the next CEO and are they different, based on changing business conditions, than our outgoing CEO?

At Chapman & Co., we help you navigate this uncertainty and plan for a future that ensures the success of your business.
