Private, Family-Owned Firms
Many of the world’s best-performing, most respected companies are private, family-owned firms. Long-term vision and the ability to move more nimbly than their publicly held counterparts are key strengths of private companies.
RM Nephew and Associates has conducted many searches for family-owned enterprises, and we have an appreciation for the importance of the deep, often multi-generational cultural dimension of our clients in this sector. Simply, it informs both our approach to candidates and our assessment of talent for these unique clients.
Helping Family-Owned Firms Transform
Many of the projects in this special sector emanate from our clients being in a stage of transformation. Succession planning and first-time transference of leadership responsibilities are frequent catalysts to hiring executive talent. We are accustomed to working with our clients in matching skills, character and values in filling these important positions.
Private, family-owned sector search successes include Chief Executive Officer, President, Board Advisor, Vice President of International, Chief Financial Officer, Chief Human Resources Officer, Chief Marketing Officer, and Division General Manager.
From the beginning of our engagement, we ensure that all stakeholders are aligned about the profile of the new leader to be attracted. We remain deeply involved at every step of the recruiting process, from research and introductions through negotiation, closing and follow-up.
