Hiring a CEO

Find the right CEO to lead your company

How do you find the best candidate for one of the most important positions within your company? What qualities and attributes should you look for? How can you choose a leader who will ensure the success of your business?

Whether you want to gain additional freedom or position your company for a sale, Decision Associates understands that hiring a CEO is the first step in developing a succession and exit plan for your business. Having a highly-qualified CEO provides evidence to potential buyers that the business is on track for continued success, even if the current owner steps down. 

Hiring a CEO allows you to:

  • Step away from the day-to-day operations of the business 
  • Focus and provide strategic direction to continue to grow the business 
  • Make the business more attractive to a potential buyer
