The Council is a consulting firm that provides confidential advice and counsel to the executive leaders of enterprises and institutions. We combine the experience of our Senior Advisors, our extensive professional networks, and partnerships with other services firms to help our clients shape their leadership agendas, set priorities, and make critical decisions.
The Council launched in late 2019 with twelve Senior Advisors, including six former chief executives and four additional “CXOs,” that bring over 300 years of diverse industry, functional, and cultural experiences to bear on every engagement. We are experienced leaders who have served as operating executives, senior partners, investors, and board members for a diverse set of firms including some of the world’s largest enterprises and most prestigious management consulting firms. Our industry experience covers the high tech, financial services, healthcare, media, professional services, and manufacturing sectors. Our professional networks include dozens of other CEOs and senior executives with extensive functional experience. We maintain discrete relationships with specialty firms to supplement our capabilities as needed for each unique engagement.
We serve clients on a long-term basis and evolve our engagement teams, draw upon different capabilities, and adjust our interactions to match our clients’ priorities. We are a private firm with no external investors. We provide no services beyond independent and objective counsel. We limit the number of clients we serve to ensure that our attention and efforts are never fragmented.
We provide continuing counsel aimed at strengthening our Clients’ sustained, positive impact for their stakeholders.
We seek to form collaborative, enduring, and trust-based partnerships with the executives we serve.
We help Clients shape their leadership agenda, set priorities, and make critical decisions.
The Council’s Senior Advisors bring diverse industry, functional, and cultural experiences. Our approach capitalizes on the breadth and depth of their insights.
We do not allow our personal or professional interests to affect our Client service. Senior Advisors neither serve competitors nor share any of our Clients’ information with colleagues who have any involvement with competing enterprises.
We do not divulge our Clients’ identities or the content of our relationships outside of The Council without our Client’s explicit consent.
The Council is made up of experienced leaders who have served as operating executives, senior partners, investors, and board members for a diverse set of firms, including some of the world’s largest enterprises. We have global experience and appreciate the importance of local cultures. We are passionate about exploring the art and science of enterprise leadership, contributing to the success of others, and working with dynamic, high integrity leaders.
We engage Clients through private conversations and draw upon the full measure of our experiences, analytic capability, and knowledge to shape our perspectives. We work to meet our Clients’ needs, schedules, and priorities, and communicate in the form that best suits their preferences.
We are a private firm with no external investors. We provide no services beyond independent and objective counsel. We limit the number of clients we serve to ensure that our attention and efforts are never fragmented.
