We are in the process of a CEO search, our current CEO is retiring at the end of the year. For those that have been through a CEO transition, can you share any resources, sample plans, good blogs or articles for communications around the switch? Beyond just a letter to stakeholders from the new CEO, but a more comprehensive approach?Thank you!!
One organization that I think did a great job with CEO transition was the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance. New CEO Maud Lyons was introduced along with a platform/agenda/message/focus called Future Forward. I don't know if it was her idea or if it was something they all worked on to develop together. Her coming launched a year of truly unique events and dialogue all focused on that topic that was really interesting. It felt like something exciting and dynamic was shifting and they were leading it. And it gave the press an angle on a story so much bigger than "new CEO at Philly Arts org".
