CEO Executive Search

The Challenge of CEO Search

A global owner, operator, and developer of toll roads engaged N2Growth for a Chief Executive Officer search. The client’s focus was the company’s ownership of a greenway connecting Northern Virginia to Washington D.C. The company sought a tested leader with deep expertise in Virginia and the greater D.C. transportation market to lead the organization. 

The Mission

Our client required the addition of a Chief Executive Officer to enable them to lead the private/public relationship between the greenway tollroad and the Commonwealth of Virginia.  The CEO would guide, manage, lead, and develop the company’s management team and staff to deliver a strong customer experience, efficient operation, and strong community engagement.  In finding the client’s Chief Executive Officer, N2Growth’s team played a pivotal role as a thought partner in helping the client find a candidate capable of establishing a collaborative, proactive, growth-focused culture. Someone who could inspire a team driven to succeed and improve operations while operating a first-class business.

The Result

The specific insights we drew and the alignment we found in the early days of this search created clarity and little need for specification iteration as the search developed.  Our team rigorously mapped the market for candidates whose attributes aligned with our client’s needs.  After tens of interviews, we submitted a total of twelve candidates for consideration for the role.  Our client executed an employment agreement with a candidate introduced in the first round of candidates only three weeks into the search
