Founder-CEO Transitions

The importance of a founder-CEO transition – the exit of the founder-CEO and the entry of their successor – cannot be overstated.

When done well, a successful founder-CEO transition is a real hallmark of an organisation’s maturity, stability, and fundability. Conversely, a poorly handled exit can have significant repercussions amongst staff, funders and stakeholders, and a detrimental impact on the organisation’s development.

Building on first-hand experience of our team and clients, Oxford HR’s Founder-CEO Transitions service provides a complete package of support to help organisations navigate this pivotal transition, providing transition planning and change management support in advance of the search for the successor CEO, a full executive search, and coaching for both the outgoing founder-CEO and their incoming successor.
