Chief Executive Officer & Board of Directors


At Heidrick & Struggles, we have built our Chief Executive Officer & Board of Directors (CEO & Board) Practice around understanding you, your strategy and the complex issues you face every day. Are you ready to take your company public? Are you ready for attention from activist investors? Are you ready to facilitate a smooth, successful CEO transition? We partner with CEOs and Board members to address these and other complex challenges.

We offer an integrated suite of services, from the acquisition of talent to longer-term Succession Planning, Board Dynamics, and Culture Shaping. We provide resources and support to ensure you are ready for any challenge, helping us fulfill our purpose to change the world, one leadership team at a time.

The CEO & Board Practice leverages our most accomplished professionals around the world. Our deep understanding of the ever-transforming nature of leadership across industries, sectors and regions – combined with our proprietary assessment methodology the Infinity Framework – make us uniquely qualified to advise and support you as you consider: Are You Ready?
