Succession Strategy

Find and prepare tomorrow’s leaders today

 

Leadership changes can disrupt your business. Succession planning makes it a smoother transition.

For companies positioning for an ownership transition, clear successors for leadership positions provide an important asset to the owner and to the acquirer.

For a business with an eye toward the future, succession planning is neither "one-size-fits-all" nor is it a one-time event. Whether you are executing a carefully developed succession plan or reacting to a sudden leadership departure, Standish Executive Search offers services to support your organization through a leadership transition.

Our expert team helps you design, improve and implement effective leadership succession plans so that you have the talent supply when demand calls. We work with you to create the leadership talent pool needed to execute your strategy.

The result? Continuity of high-performing leadership, ready to meet the challenges of today...and tomorrow.
