        What to Look for in a Turnaround Executive

        When a company reaches the brink of disaster, the board of directors often looks for a new CEO or CFO to step in and turn things around. Declining profits, loss of major customers, and a freefall in share price are all indicators that someone needs to step in fast or risk the company heading into bankruptcy.


        Finding the right person for the job isn’t easy. Leading a company on a downward trend can harm an executive’s reputation, especially if their turnaround efforts fail to bear fruit. Additionally, they’ll need to carefully balance their plans for the organization with the board of directors’ ideas, which may differ.
