CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER

The digitisation of business worldwide has created an appetite to connect all aspects of an organisation, from procurement, manufacturing, sales and distribution through to customer experience. This alignment enables all facets of a business to work seamlessly together as a fluid and continually improving unit, with each sector affecting the productivity of another.

The successful transformation of operational processes results in efficiently optimising productivity. The role of COO’s and Operations Executives are now securely involved with core business decisions; they are the business partner to the wider C-Suite executive team. As leaders, they must distinctively recognise and seize opportunities and forging strategic alliances both internally and externally.

SOME OF OUR EXECUTIVE PLACEMENTS


STRATEGIC GROWTH EXPERTISE

WE MAKE IT OUR BUSINESS TO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT OUR CLIENTS

  • BOARD REVIEWS

    Purchasing Boardroom Partners in 2020 – a leading Australian Board Search and Advisory firm across all industries – strengthens our commitment to helping organisations review their corporate goals within the boardroom to implement exceptional corporate governance. Founded by Jane Bridge in 1999, Boardroom Partners’ specialist services provided exemplary counsel regarding the structure, composition and operations of boards. Their expertise in reviewing individual performances, conducting skills analysis, implementing Chair and Director searches and advice on non-executive remuneration and assistance regarding shareholder relationships leverages Johnson Partners’ offering with substantial influence.

  • SUCCESSION PLANNING & MARKET MAPPING

    While an organisation may have a binder full of names, when a ‘succession event’ occurs, it is often unplanned. When done properly, passing on the baton barely causes a ripple. Prudent leaders begin the process almost from day one, starting with an assessment of their teams

  • LEADERSHIP ASSESSMENT

    A board can only feel confident that they have the right team in place to execute their corporate strategy if they objectively evaluate their leadership team.

  • DUE DILIGENCE

    The difference between a smooth merger or a stumble is leadership, and the difference between good leadership and under performing leadership is due diligence. During critical business change, we partner with clients to manage unforeseen risks involving incumbent executives, as well as prospective appointments.

  • GROWTH SOLUTIONS

    We work closely with our clients to identify realistic growth options, managing transactions through to completion. Our extensive network of contacts enables a secure and structured progression journey, especially during periods when a firm is expanding rapidly and a number of new hires are coming on board.

    Ensuring candidate accuracy, our 30-Day Audit™ is administered by an independent partner to review the progress of each candidate search during the critical middle stage of the recruitment process. During this period, we customarily receive confirmation that we are successfully executing our strategic plan. When required, we accept suggestions regarding how to redirect the search strategy to ensure optimum success.
