Hiring a CEO

Find the right CEO to lead your company

How do you find the best candidate for one of the most important positions within your company? What qualities and attributes should you look for? How can you choose a leader who will ensure the success of your business?

Whether you want to gain additional freedom or position your company for a sale, Decision Associates understands that hiring a CEO is the first step in developing a succession and exit plan for your business. Having a highly-qualified CEO provides evidence to potential buyers that the business is on track for continued success, even if the current owner steps down. 

Hiring a CEO allows you to:

  • Step away from the day-to-day operations of the business 
  • Focus and provide strategic direction to continue to grow the business 
  • Make the business more attractive to a potential buyer

"Our company is great at hiring for most positions, but when we needed help with an executive position, we turned to Decision Associates. We felt that we didn't have to 'go it alone' to find the right person. The screening tools that were used helped to match the candidate to the personality and culture of Betts Industries. They identified the traits and performance indicators with the candidates, and we began a vetting process that was intensive and successful. The whole process was quicker than we thought it would be and was narrowed to a handful of candidates who were all qualified. It was an easy process to work with Decision Associates, the extra work up front that they did benefited us at the end. Our hire is going great and exceeding our expectations. We would recommend Aaron Phillips and Elizabeth Cipolla to assist in any executive position needed and will turn to them again."
