Chief Executive Officer Board of Directors

The Heidrick & Struggles' brand and our Chief Executive Officer and Board of Directors Practice have been built on our ability to execute on top-level assignments and counsel CEOs and board members on the complex issues directly impacting their businesses.

We pride ourselves on being our clients' most trusted advisor, and offer an integrated suite of services to help manage these challenges and their leadership assets from the acquisition of talent through executive search to providing counsel in areas that include succession planning, executive and board assessment, board effectiveness,  on-boarding, peer benchmarking and coaching.

The role of CEO is increasingly looked upon with greater scrutiny by the public and regulators. Corporate governance reforms have also raised the bar of corporate board performance while also increasing the challenge of recruiting the best leaders for non-executive director positions.

Our Chief Executive Officer and Board of Directors Practice leverages our most accomplished CEO search and leadership consulting professionals in principal cities around the world who understand the ever-transforming nature of leadership. Many of our Board & CEO search search experts are located in the key cities with the world’s most import stock exchanges such as New York, London, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, Singapore, Tokyo and Shanghai. This expertise, combined with in depth industry, sector and regional knowledge, differentiated research capabilities and intellectual capital, enables us to provide sound global coverage for our clients.
