She also spearheaded a refreshed brand strategy, expanded technology offerings and deepened Taylor’s presence – leading Taylor into the future.
Bring your Board and learn together about Taylor 2.0. We'll explore the governance and leadership issues when a new CEO arrives to implement transformative change and engage multiple stakeholders while honoring the successes of the past.  Additional items covered:
  • How do leaders of one of the largest privately  held companies in the United States manage the changes in mission, value, governance and strategies that come with engaging a new CEO?
  • How does a new CEO work with the board and the new executive staff to bring together 85 separate companies while still honoring the legacy of the past?
  • What are the keys to identifying and closing on strategic acquisitions that double the size of your organization?
  • Who are the key stakeholders in such a vast empire, and what approaches work best to keep the business focused during a corporate transformation?


This program will be of special interest to board members, CEOs and CFOs.  Please join us for this thought-provoking discussion!
