We are committed to our clients’ success.
We successfully conduct more than 300 CEO search, succession and transition advisory assignments each year, backed by 60 years of experience advising boards across the globe on transitions. We advise chairmen, sitting CEOs, HR leaders and private equity investors on numerous leadership issues, including executive assessment, leadership development and CEO onboarding.
Spencer Stuart has handled 20 percent of the CEO changes across the top 300 companies in Europe, and led more than one-third of CEO searches within the S&P 500 that went to external search — the highest share of any firm. Four times more shareholder value was created at companies where we placed the chief executive.
We have assessed more than 1,000 CEO and CEO-ready candidates for capability, CEO aptitude, cultural impact and stretch potential. For companies with revenues of more than $2 billion, our CEO retention rate stands at 93 percent.
