Succession planning and leader assessment are crucial elements for the success of any business.

Neglecting to plan for leadership transitions and assess existing and potential leaders can result in significant financial and operational difficulties. The cost of replacing a failed executive can be up to 10 times their salary, and companies that have to terminate a CEO can lose millions (or even billions) of dollars in shareholder value. Therefore, it is imperative that companies invest in succession planning and leader assessment to secure their future.

At Stanton Chase, we are committed to helping our clients create sustainable businesses that grow and thrive. As your partner in leadership, we offer comprehensive services to prepare your leadership pipeline, assess your current and future leaders, and develop your existing leadership team. Consequently, we are pleased to announce the appointment of Koenraad Goris as our new Global Advisory Leader for Assessment and Succession Planning.

With Koenraad’s appointment, we are further strengthening our leadership advisory offering to our clients. Koenraad is a certified psychologist specializing in talent management and leadership, with extensive experience in international assessments and development center projects. His expertise in identifying leadership potential and addressing leadership problems is unparalleled. Koenraad’s past roles, including Director of People & Organization at PwC and Partner at Cubiks (a global assessment tools provider now operating as Talogy), have given him a deep understanding of business and leadership.

Koenraad’s educational background includes two master’s degrees, postgraduate qualifications in HRM and corporate governance from UAMS, and coaching training from Pa Consulting. His entrepreneurial spirit, innovativeness, and commitment to excellence align with Stanton Chase’s core values. With Koenraad on board, we are confident that Stanton Chase will continue to play a crucial role in ensuring countless organizations’ growth and success through succession planning and leader assessment.

We also provide leadership advice such as Executive Assessments and Succession Planning, including bespoke Leadership Development Programs.
