Event Details

May 16, 2019

2-3 p.m. (EST)

Identify a CEO successor. It sounds like one of the board’s more straightforward duties, yet in practice, it is complex and multifaceted. When you weigh the consequences of “getting it wrong,” combined with the fact that even the most carefully executed succession plan introduces uncertainty, it’s clear this is one of the most strategic board deliberations.

In this webcast, NACD and Pearl Meyer will examine four trends that are changing the dynamics of succession planning, discuss the different succession scenarios that need to be considered, and the key steps that lead to a solid plan. We will also outline the critical role that executive compensation programs play in developing and transitioning top leaders.
