CEO Executive Search and Recruitment

Vell Executive Search has decades of experience advising boards in one of their primary responsibilities: deciding whether to replace the CEO, select a new leader, or supplement the organization with additional leadership talent. Successful CEO transitions require a lot of forethought and planning. We are a CEO search firm that is a gateway to a world-class chief executive officer.

The Chief Executive Officer’s role varies greatly depending on the needs of the organization. In general, the CEO:

  • Develops and recommends a long-term strategy and vision for the company that creates shareholder value.
  • Spearheads major financing events.
  • Fosters a corporate culture that promotes ethical practices, encourages individual integrity, and fulfills social responsibility.
  • Ensures a positive and ethical work climate that attracts, retains and motivates a diverse group of employees at all levels.
  • Designs a highly effective and diverse organization at the executive and management levels.
  • Manages the day-to-day affairs of the company.
  • Ensures that the company achieves its financial and operating goals.
  • Develops and recommends the annual business budgets.
  • Makes certain that the company achieves the desired competitive stance.

Identifying, recruiting and vetting the perfect-fit CEO who delivers results is our mission. Our consultants embed salary benchmarking in the search process by providing real-time compensation information in weekly meetings. With unwavering commitment, we work as true partners through every step of the CEO recruitment process and beyond.

We have a variety of position specifications for the roles of Chief Executive, COO and Executive Chairman, and combinations thereof, for technology companies. Feel free to reach out for examples.
