Taylor 2.0 – Lessons Learned From a Change in Leadership
Businesses face many challenges in the change in CEO leadership. How can incoming leadership honor the past and engage multiple stakeholders while looking ahead to the future? It involves more than the CEO. The board, CEO, and CFO must be the leading examples to drive change and enhance shareholder value.
We heard from Deb Taylor of Taylor Corp.—the new CEO of one of the largest privately held companies in the United States:
How leaders of one of the largest privately held companies in the United States managed the changes in mission, values, governance, and strategies that come with engaging a new CEO?
How a new CEO worked with the board and new executive staff to bring together 85 separate companies while still honoring the legacy of the past?
What were the keys to identifying and closing on strategic acquisitions that double the size of your organization?
Who are the key stakeholders in such a vast enterprise, and what approaches worked best to keep the business focused during a corporate transformation?
This program was of special interest to board members, CEOs, and CFOs.
Please note the change in location for this event!
