It Can Be Lonely at the Top.
Leaders are expected to have all of the answers while being isolated from many critical day to day aspects of the business. With few peers, they have too little opportunity to test their ideas or learn from colleagues. Ever growing demands on the time of the CEO and executive team make focusing on strategic issues difficult and implementation of strategy nearly impossible. Companies and Agencies often have the additional strain of inadequate skills across the executive team to tackle capital planning, human capital management, or other complex tasks.

Stokes Evans works directly with owners and executives to address sensitive issues requiring a balance of strategic discretion and organizational engagement. We can provide professional analysis and advisory services in addition to rolling up our sleeves and taking on complex tasks directly.

 

CEO / CIO Advisory and Support.

Chief Executives and other top leaders are facing more demands and challenges than ever:

  • - They have more work than they could possible ever finish
  • - Their customers and stakeholders are constantly demanding more of them and response times are becoming shorter and shorter
  • - They are uncertain about whom they can trust
  • - They are increasingly called on to perform turnaround miracles or implement radical change
  • - And their enterprises are looking to them for true leadership.

    Stoke Evans collaborates with senior leaders to establish a trusting relationship by explicitly aligning our objectives and compensation with the success of our executive partners. We look for opportunities to "jump in the boat" with clients and create shared success. We know what you are up against and are excited to share even the worst ap sects of being a senior leader.
