CEO Search & Selection

Sourcing business leaders for business leaders

Partnering primarily with private businesses, Lawson Delaney has recruited many CEOs matched to the unique context of each organisation, its owners and their goals. We have the proven ability to identify, and most importantly, execute the right strategy for your business, first time, every time.

Specialist sourcing skills are imperative to a successful CEO appointment, as is the manner in which a new leader is brought into a business. Lawson Delaney works closely with owners and the new CEO to guide them through the inevitable challenges.

Your business objective will determine the type of leader your business needs. Whether you are looking to scale and grow or someone to take on the smooth running of the business we are well placed to confirm your needs and support the transition.
