Recent Examples

A small property and casual insurance company is faced with the retirement of its long term CEO. Their search for a successor included two internal candidates and one external one. The search committee wanted to ensure a fair and objective leadership test since at least one or both internal candidates might be passed over.

The board of directors (BOD) of a rural electric cooperative is tasked with finding a replacement for its 30+ plus years tenured CEO. Their location, small size, and “unique” culture set requirements that only a few candidates might meet. Company politics requires them to open up the opportunity and 12 candidates apply including several internal candidates, who are poor fits. The BOD wants to ensure a fair and objective process to narrow down the field to the 3 most qualified candidates and then assist them in interviewing and selecting the right leader.

A faith-based assisted living and retirement center seeks a replacement for a CEO who was recently terminated. The BOD does not want to make another mistake. They have selected an interim CEO but before making a permanent job offer, they want to assess the potential and cultural fit.
