CEO / President / General Manager / Country Manager

The successful leader of an overseas subsidiary will be an experienced executive, recognized and respected by industry peers, and clients. Having a stellar reputation is particularly important if the employer brand is not (yet) well-known.

Such leaders must also combine an ability to lead independently with the understanding that the national market, while important, is not the only one for the parent company - significant resources, such as engineering, product development and manufacturing will likely be located overseas and their costs be shared among different markets. The ability to build a rapport with executives and shareholders overseas is crucial. Not every General Manager, even with a successful track record with a local company, masters these international cultural aspects well.

When selecting a Country Manager, it is also important to put in place a strong internal pipeline of talent, so the company is not dependent solely on a single leader. The Board needs to prepare succession issues making sure that the US subsidiary can react quickly to changing market conditions. We can help build a strong team of functional leaders with CEO potential.
