Board & CEO Search
Unleashing board and CEO performance is critical to business success. That’s why our trusted consultants partner with you to get a solid grasp of your strategy. Leveraging a combination of research, reach, and relationships, we recruit the most capable talent to steer your company in the right direction. When discretion is critical, Acertitude delivers.
We ask the deep questions to get to the root of your leadership needs. From there, a robust score-carding process aligns the panel to what good looks like. We then quickly identify and attract exceptional talent. We don't just place anyone. For us, it’s personal. We’re all about co-creating with clients, delivering effectively, and shaping lasting change.
Our scientifically validated assessment tools predict performance to identify top talent with greater certainty. These insights encourage you to evaluate individuals, teams, or boards holistically — their experience, traits, leadership competence, and mental agility. Our process helps you to de-risk your most pressing selection and development decisions.
A successful private equity transaction requires deep insight into human capital in addition to other aspects of the business. A thorough assessment of portfolio company leadership should be a critical part of any due diligence process.
