Good news for CDOs:
The war for talent continues in the C-suite and at PE firms
There is a “leadership crisis” unfolding at Private Equity firms and their portfolio companies, where executives are expected to hit the ground running to manage turnarounds, succession planning, change management, and to identify and deliver new products and revenue streams in an increasingly competitive and disruptive business environment.
Hence the importance of experienced CDOs to PE groups such as Bain Capital, Carlyle Group, Providence Equity Partners, KKR, Apollo Global, Blackstone, and their portfolio companies.
According to a recent report by Hunt-Scanlon:
“The PE sector can expect to see an expanding bidding war for top talent over the next decade. Driving the trend: persistent global talent shortages across the C-suite in most industries and functions, including finance, healthcare, biotech, digital, and technology.
Value creation for PE firms is no longer beholden to financial engineering. Instead, returns are best maximized by building top flight management teams to drive revenue, find operating efficiencies and transform culture. Leadership is the new bottom line for PE operating executives seeking top talent for their portfolio businesses.”
Our goal at the CDO Club is is to help our members prepare for these important positions. For example, in 2018 Bain Capital and the CDO Club co-published a report on ‘101 CDOs Who Have Become CEO/President.’
The phenomenon is occurring globally, across sectors, and at organizations of all sizes. The CDO Club is the only organization tracking this important trend – see our “Hall of Fame” page for the entire list.
For many vendors, its become increasingly difficult to keep track of who is in charge at their client’s organizations. Shifting budgets, internal battles over head-count, new decision-makers in the C-Suite. Almost every sector has been affected.
Seasoned leaders with experience in digital transformation and data-driven culture are increasingly getting the keys to the kingdom, reporting to the CEO and the Board.
We’ve been tracking this shift since 2011, when there were only a few hundred CDOs on earth. Now, thousands of people hold those titles.
We can help get your message to these highly coveted, C-level digital and data decision-makers. We provide our partners with unparalleled access to the world’s top data, analytics, and digital executives, and enable you to learn more about their projects, needs, timelines, and budgets.
If you provide solutions that add value to enterprise CDOs and CAOs, you should join us this year.
