C-Level Executive Search

Selection of a chairman

If the company or the owner has long-term goals, the suitable executive search and the appropriate selection of a chairman or managing director is a difficult and challenging decision for the supervisory board. Often determined by a few members, different characters and ideas come into conflict, sometimes as late as the presentation during the final rounds.

Different perspectives when it comes to define the C-level executive needed

It is of little importance that a supervisory board or an advisory board is rarely involved in filling such a c-level position and is therefore less experienced – much more important are the different perspectives encountered, both personally as well as professionally. Starting by the goals of the company, the mindset of the decision makers of the board may be very wide apart from each other.

Transparent coaching of an executive search process

HSH+S Executive Search pays particular attention to offering a confident and coordinated search. In order to avoid uncertainty and differences in conceptions, we perform the search process as transparently as possible. Ideally, not only the owner but also the majority of the supervisory board or advisory board are involved, coached and group discussions are moderated. Provided that the decision-making body is informed of the ideal profile of the desired candidate from the very beginning, a executive search of a c-level position can almost always be completed quickly, confidentialy and successfully.

Growing complexity

Every year, HSH+S fills numerous management positions on a regular and international basis. Owing to the often challenging tasks and negotiation partners, only very experienced HSH+S Executive Search Consultants carry out the search for C-Levels, General Managers or for Managing Directors.

CEO selection is critical

The selection of a new chairman is different from filling any other position, particularly due to the necessary confidentiality. The effect of a premature disclosure could have both external and internal effects. Externally, it could lead to a great need for public clarification to customers, the media or partners, and internally it could have a major impact on the organization and motivation of colleagues and employees of the CEO.
