Whether by sudden tragedy, poor performance, merger, takeover or simple retirement, every CEO will leave his or her position. The corporate boards that take on a systematic, predictable and transparent process in choosing the next leaders of the organization build stronger cultures, clarify the company's strategy and deliver value to all stakeholders, including employees

Dennis Carey has launched the Web Site, CEOSuccession.com, based on his experience as an executive recruiter who has specialized in director and chief executive searches over the past 20 years.

"In working with leading companies, we have developed a window on how boards can get it right when choosing a new chief executive," said Mr. Carey. "This is the critical fiduciary responsibility of the board, ensuring the steady flow of effective leadership in corporate America."

The website offers access to the insight that Mr. Carey has developed over the course of his career. "Whether by sudden tragedy, poor performance, merger, takeover or simple retirement, every CEO will leave his or her position. The corporate boards that take on a systematic, predictable and transparent process in choosing the next leaders of the organization build stronger cultures, clarify the company's strategy and deliver value to all stakeholders, including employees," Mr. Carey said.
