The Future of Leadership

Move Forward Faster

Leadership Solutions

As businesses begin to move from crisis response to planning and business restart, Boards and leadership teams are re-evaluating and re-focusing many aspects of their organisations. From changes to organisational structure, reinvigorating commercial operations and improving technology through to employee, customer experience and operational changes, businesses need the right leadership in the right places to move forward, faster.

Savannah can help businesses acquire high impact executives to increase leadership capability both in the short and medium term, provide in-depth candidate mapping to guide future talent acquisition strategies or help organisations virtually onboard new senior hires.

Key Challenges Facing Businesses

Leadership Restructuring

As businesses adapt their strategies and their business model new leadership skills are often required. This is resulting in some executive roles amalgamating, some positions no longer being required and new roles being identified.

Driving Business Performance

What will your business workforce look like over the next 3-12 months and how can you continue to drive growth, organisational performance and motivate staff in a highly remote working environment? Leadership agility is a crucial skill needed to mobilise and unite the organisation.

Upgrading Leadership Capability

While many leaders have shown guidance, strength and resilience through the crisis some unfortunately have been found wanting. With a fluid candidate market buoyed by increased availability of top candidates, businesses can use this opportunity to upgrade their leadership in key areas.

Seizing Opportunities

The business landscape has shifted and while challenges remain, opportunities to increase market share or reposition products and services are being presented. Extra capability may be needed in certain functions such as Commercial or Technology, a potential merger or acquisition may be on the cards or priority transformation projects now require additional resource.

Executive Interim + Search

An Integrated Approach

Savannah is one of the few executive search firms specialising in both executive search and executive interim appointments, helping your business adapt with agility, pace and confidence. Working with publicly listed and large private businesses along with Private Equity and their portfolio businesses, we offer an integrated approach to hiring executive talent. After understanding the business’s immediate needs and it’s longer term requirements, we parachute in a seasoned executive interim able to start within a week to immediately increase leadership capability and address any critical business concerns. Once in place, an executive search partner works with the client and the interim to identify what the long term successor needs to look like and we then run a full search process to identify and hire that person. We work with the client, the outgoing interim and the incoming full time executive to ensure a smooth transition and transfer of knowledge.

It’s a solution that provides the best of both worlds. Immediate executive support in a key area of the business and deliver key short-term objectives with the space to identify who the right long term leader should be.

  • More than 600 senior executive placements in the last five years

  • 85% repeat business

  • Only the best interim executives: our interim’s are handpicked and represent the most experienced and reputable operators in the market

  • Full global search and comprehensive market mapping to access candidates not on the radar of other firms
