CEO & Board of Directors
Helping organizations lead with purpose to be the best they can be now and in the future

CEOs and boards are facing ever-growing disruption and responsibilities. In addition to increased shareholder pressure, activists, digital transformation, and ESG, leadership teams must remain focused on the future and the complexities of CEO succession, C-suite buildouts and creating a dynamic and transparent boardroom that encourages diversity of thought, talent, and teams.

Heidrick & Struggles has a proven global track record of working at the top with efficiency and discretion. Our data-driven advisory approach and extensive global talent network help our clients build inclusive, sustainable leadership teams with the right skills, knowledge, and agility to adapt, change, and remain effective to ensure long-term success.

Annual Report

Board Monitor US 2022

In 2021, boards of companies in the Fortune 500 continued a trend that began in the second half of 2020: bringing in an infusion of fresh thinking by reaching out to groups of people from increasingly diverse backgrounds.

We believe that diversity broadens and enhances the boardroom and leadership teams' perspective.

Where are the women CEOs?

The progress of women to the top role in the world’s largest publicly listed companies has been slow since the appointment of the first woman CEO of a Fortune 500 company, in 1963. After six decades, there are still only 6% around the world.
