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

"As a member and graduate of the recent Leadership Peer Group held at Decision Associates, I found the most beneficial outcome, other than the monthly topics, was being connected with others in the same position. I now have a dozen peers to turn to when a question or problem arises in our company. It's great to be able to talk to someone who may have experienced the same situations. I also enjoyed touring other companies with the Peer Group. From this rear opportunity of a behind the scenes look, I was able to take this experience and return to our facility and implement valuable improvements. I would recommend this Peer Group to others in leadership positions."
