Johnson Partners have appointed many of the Asia-Pacific region’s leading CEOs through multi-year succession programs and more immediate global searches to identify the world’s best talent. In each context of the search for the role, we conduct deep discovery meetings with stakeholders to understand the organisation’s strategy, culture, and future leadership requirements plus long term goals. Whatever the scenario, the health of the organisation and the way it is viewed by investors and other key stakeholders depends largely on the experience, track record and leadership qualities of the CEO candidate.
Today’s CEO requires a combination of technical acumen and strategic foresight to unite the technological, regulatory, and economic opportunities of an organisation. They must possess the talent and communicative skills to engage stakeholders at every level – from investors, board members, the diverse internal workforce, customers and media.
