Board Level Executive Search and Recruitment
Africa Board Level Executive Search is a division of the CA Global Group, and partners with corporates and venture capital houses in order to identify, and secure, world class board level talent across the African continent.
We specialise in the placement of non-executive and executive board appointments, including Chief Executive Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Managing Directors, Chief Financial Officers, Human Resources Directors, and other specialised board level positions – such as Interim Board Members or Board Chairmen.
Spanning East, West, North and Southern Africa, we leverage our experience and extensive research capabilities to recruit key executives for the pharmaceutical, medical, FMCG, manufacturing, agricultural, telecoms, mining, oil and gas, and service industries.
There are several categories of CEO, COO, MD and General Manager that we recruit across all African countries, including:
Individuals who will have typically held leadership positions across several disciplines in a business consisting of numerous operations in various countries, across several product lines and industries. Consummate negotiators, inspiring leaders and possessing top level business acumen, they are able to influence board level management staff and take overall accountability for the business’s financial and general performance.
Medium Sized Business Specialists
Individuals who are capable of making business decisions despite other people’s opposition in order to drive growth to the next level. These CEOs or COOs are willing to exit the “ivory tower” and get their hands dirty should the business require it. Highly charismatic and with strong self -belief, they will be able to influence people and ensure the business is on the right track.
Entrepreneurial Start-Up Specialists
Highly experienced entrepreneurs with proven track records of driving rapid growth through the early stages in the life of a business. These individuals must be able to not only design and successfully implement processes and procedures and ensure adherence thereto in a rapidly growing environment, but should additionally have the business acumen, negotiating skills and powers of persuasion to convince independent investors, banks, and venture capital houses that their funds are secure and being correctly utilised. These CEOs should be able to guide the business through exciting yet often turbulent times, and must possess strong inter-personal skills and “EQ”.
Mature businesses sometimes experience periods of financial trauma due to uncompetitive products, expensive costs of production, or other inefficiencies. Often this is due to the existing management team sticking to what has worked in the past, but is not the best strategy currently. An outside CEO, whether permanent or interim, can provide input, leadership and guidance to re-align business strategies and procedures, and have the self-confidence to make difficult decisions and then implement them.
As Africa recruitment leaders, CA Global is well networked and connected amongst CEO and board level individuals across the African continent. Our brand has been built on our ability to execute on top-level assignments throughout Africa, not only through our executive search services but additionally through our ability to provide accurate information and strong recommendations that enable our clients to recruit strategically in the increasingly complex field that board selection is today.
