At SEQEL, we take the time to understand your business, speaking with the Board Chair and individual Directors to develop a Chief Executive specification that fully captures the company’s strategic and operational aspirations over the medium to long term. We then determine relevant experience, competencies, diversity, style and culture fit requirements. We distil this information and develop a tailored Chief Executive search strategy targeting predominantly passive talent based in both New Zealand and offshore. Utilising our executive recruitment process and methodology, we systematically identify, approach and assess relevant candidates prior to client interviews. In partnership with our clients, we conduct appropriate references and psychometric testing, before offer and negotiation with the preferred candidate. Finally, we facilitate quality Chief Executive on-boarding, focusing on ensuring the appointee makes a fast start in the new position.
The appointment of a Chief Executive is undoubtedly the most value creating, or destroying, decision a Board will make. The stakes are high for shareholders and the reputation of Directors can be enhanced or diminished. Over an extended period of time, SEQEL has developed a track record of facilitating highly successful Chief Executive appointments, working closely with Boards of Directors for leading New Zealand companies.
