Adaptive CEO Succession
Emergency Succession Coordination
“We valued the fact that The ExCo Group knew our business and was thorough in understanding our strategy and what was required for the next leader. The process was comprehensive, yet completely relatable for our board. The entire board commented about the process, their engagement, and the clarity of the reporting which made the decision — which is always a difficult one — a lot easier. I would highly recommend The ExCo Group and would use them again any time for succession work.”
— Chairman/CEO, Large Convenience Retailer
“We are so happy to be working with The ExCo Group. Our CEO and CHRO were blown away with your insights, reporting, and the thoroughness of your work. We loved the simplicity. It was very traceable for the leader from the inputs to the outputs. Historically, we have struggled with getting inputs to connect to the outputs, but you nailed it. We look forward to and remain committed to working with you in the future.”

“I’ve done lots of these feedback sessions in my career, and this one with The ExCo Group was by far the clearest and most impactful. I learned more in my debrief than I did in 30 years of hearing similar types of debriefs.”
