C-suite Management Transitions
Leadership change can affect a company’s reputation and valuation. Measures taken by the board and management in the months leading up to — and following — the change often determine whether the net effect is positive or negative.
CEO change presents more downside risk than upside potential, extending well beyond the point of transition. Clearly, there is greater risk in unplanned CEO transitions. The greater the surprise and the higher the potential for corporate strategy shifts surrounding the transition, the more carefully the change must be managed and communicated.
