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

"In my Decision Associates Peer Group, I learned to truly 'think outside the box' and consider new avenues to grow my business. The experience was invaluable. while our group members came from different industries, we looked to each other for advice, encouragement and support to address the issues in our own companies. Decision Associates challenged us to address the issues that were tough but had the most impact on our business. I feel strongly enough about it that I have asked my boys to become part of this upcoming peer group; it will be one of the best things I can do for their growth."
