The successful appointment of a CEO

The business media, analysts, investment funds boards (and those they represent) and of course staff in organisations all have a strong interest in the capabilities and likely success of CEO appointments. CEOs are sourced most usually amongst previous or current incumbents in similar roles external to the organisation, from divisional heads, or finance heads in the organization, and from country heads of multi-nationals perhaps not listed in Australia. Where an appointment is being made to this level, with the contender not having had previous CEO experience, the transition is much bigger than many understand.
