Executive Search and Your CEO Career

BlueSteps recently hosted an #ExecCareer Chat on the topic of executive search and your CEO career, featuring Tom Fuller, from Epsen Fuller Group, Keith Pearson, from Pearson Partners International, and Luis Truchado, from Eurogalenus and AIMS International.

Some of the questions asked included:

  • What is the best way to get on executive recruiters’ radar as a CEO candidate?
  • How do I know which recruiters really specialize in CEO searches?
  • What is the typical career path of a CEO?
  • Is the CFO the logical successor to the CEO? Are other C-suite roles considered?
  • When will we have gender parity in the CEO role? What can I do, as a female, to be visible and get that seat?
  • I want to run a sponsored/PE business. What do you suggest?
  • I want to run an international business. What do you suggest?
  • As a CEO, how do I prepare for/present myself for a board seat?
