Chief Executive Officers: The Trend of Boards Recruiting CEO’s from the Outside Continues To Grow (from Strategy+Business)

This is a fascinating article. Here are a few takeaways:

  • Needing a wider set of diverse competencies and backgrounds, coupled by more independent boards bringing in their own set of diverse networks and experiences, CEO’s being brought in from the outside has surged in the last several years.
  • CEO Turnovers at the top 2,500 largest companies are up 16%. Industries with the highest turnover are Telecom, Energy and Materials. Most are planned (78%), some are forced and some due to M&A’s.
  • Utility companies are the #1 industry most likely to hire outside CEO’s from another industry.
  • Bringing in outside CEO’s is a succession planning trend that is predicated to continue – though the majority of CEO spots will still continue to be filled internally.

Approaching a Potential Employer Cold – How to Cold Call for Executive Jobs

If you read my blog or E-zine you know I am ALL about taking both leadership and control of your executive job search—and that includes not just investing in a professionally certified executive resume writer but fully leveraging market opportunities as well. It takes a little planning, initiative, and guts—but the payback is amazing, and you get to pick your low-hanging fruit in terms of the companies YOU are interested in working for.

download  dfbfbThis article I read on CareerCloud is a great example of a plucky recruiter taking the initiative in a memorable and authentic way that answers the questions every job seeker must answer: What good are you to me, and why should I be reading this?

And even though this recruiter is not at the E-Suite yet, I bet they will be! And that makes the best employers sit up and take notice. I think it is often forgotten, when we are in job seeking mode, that just as our main challenge is to find the right opportunity at a good company—a COO’s primary challenge is generally to find and retain exceptional people. So be that exceptional person and the opportunities will follow.
