Leeb Partners resolves highly sensitive chronic problems and provides prudent guidance when an organization is in transition.  Leeb Partners provides highly-qualified professionals with excellent track records who can:

  • Gather and analyze the facts objectively
  • Work to generate a consensus
  • Develop practical solutions
  • Instill a sense of urgency to speed the process
  • Help to implement the necessary changes, if necessary and appropriate, to maximize the likelihood of success until a new CEO is identified and in place
  • Help identify the necessary skills, expertise and personality traits needed by a new permanent CEO to lead the organization properly,
  • Assist in the interview process to select a new CEO

Get an Unbiased and Fresh Perspective

An unbiased professional from Leeb Partners can provide a fresh perspective, conduct unemotional interviews with key individuals, develop a thorough and fair analysis and help you make a clear-cut decision.  Once this is done, there often is a tremendous increase in productivity and stability because people can focus again on the success of the organization rather than on their own frustrations and internal politics and controversies.

A Leeb Partners professional also brings to the table a toolbox full of solutions, processes and expertise gained from working in many different industries and businesses facing similar problems to those you are being faced with today.  We know what works and what doesn’t work because we already have had the opportunity to manage through tough issues and we know how to avoid many pitfalls.

Leverage Our Expertise

A CEO teaming up with a professional can leverage that professional’s expertise.  The CEO, by utilizing an outside professional, is no longer limited to his/her own expertise because he/she now has control of a new arsenal of solutions to bring to bear on the issues at hand.    As a result, the team can be extremely successful.

Prudent Guidance in a Crisis

Leeb Partners has an excellent track record in being the interim Chief Executive Officer or Chief Operating Officer.   This service is critically needed when there is an ongoing financial crisis requiring specialized turnaround expertise or when others are not immediately ready, willing and able to take the reins of the organization.  Leeb Partners will:

  • Provide an excellent option for boards that need a new CEO and want a trusted interim CEO to keep the organization on track until a permanent CEO can be in place.
  • Answer all questions fully and supply stakeholders with complete and proper access to detailed organization information.
  • Address staffing issues, control the increases or decreases in salaries and expense accounts, and scrutinize performance.
