CEO Recommended
Brought to you by the Fort Worth CVB
The rise of the not-so-experienced CEO
Harvard Business Review
When looking to hire a new CEO, corporate boards of directors are increasingly bypassing C-level executives and appointing less seasoned leaders. They are still looking for chiefs with the traditional attributes of intelligence, integrity and stamina — traits that have defined great executives for decades.

Most of the people you're speaking with are considering other options, have an idea of the numbers and are more interested in content and price than anything. Hitting them with smart, unexpected marketing strategies is a good way to grab their attention.
