CEO Executive Search & Headhunting Specialists

Let our team search, identify, and recruit top CEO talent for your organisation.

Importance of The CEO Role

If you’re looking to recruit a new CEO, you need to find more than someone with a first-class CV.

The role of CEO is a vital one. It has a huge impact on the rest of the organisation and leadership team.

Often our clients ask us to recruit a CEO from an existing industry leadership role, perhaps at a competing organisation. Novo can handle this discretely and in confidence on your behalf.

Alternatively, sometimes cross-transferrable industry leadership skills are a priority to bring fresh ideas. Novo is equally well placed to assist in the identification and engagement of exceptional new skills.

Novo’s Chief Executive Officer Recruitment sector experts can help you identify and attract your next exceptional executive.

CEO Skills Needed Include:

  • Highly strategic mindset
  • Outstanding leadership
  • First class commercial and technical experience
  • Strong industry knowledge
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Proven track record of transformation, growth and profitability

In addition to the above skills, the CEO also needs exceptional soft skills, with the ability to inspire a team and engage stakeholders across the board.

Novo’s Chief Executive Officer Recruitment sector experts can help you identify & attract your next exceptional executive.
