REPORTS TO: PRESIDENT & CEO

LOCATION: OPEN


POSITION OVERVIEW
This newly created position will be a member of the founding team for a brand new company designed to change medical education, specifically how medical and public health information is delivered. The company will build the first dynamically adaptive curriculum for medical education. The Chief Product Officer will be the driving force in taking these dynamic learning products to market and scaling the business worldwide. This is a rare opportunity to build a global business and global brand in turn forever changing the way medical education is taught.

The Chief Product Officer will be responsible for refining, testing and implementing the business plan and leading the product development team. S/he will have management responsibility and authority for building this innovative new curriculum delivery system and driving results.

This is not an online version of the curriculum. It is something entirely new. These courses, tentatively called a Dynamic Learning System, are based on the video lectures developed at PHSU (see background below), which are integrated into a proprietary analytic model to predict student performance. Students watch the building block videos prior to coming to class. In the classroom students and teachers work together to solve case problems and deal with real life issues based on what they’ve seen.

Private Equity: Changing Perceptions and New Realities (source: McKinsey)

Links to Leadership

PE performance success is a moving target—but one worth pursuing. McKinsey analysis of the World Economic Forum showed funds created since 1995 “meaningfully outperformed the S&P 500 index.”  Over time, PE firms outpaced the public market index by at least 300 points.  But success varies widely by firm and is difficult to sustain.  This article discusses the intricate PE landscape, with tips for identifying and marketing winning investments.

Four Traits That Make You CEO Material (source: Executive Grapevine)

Links to Leadership

What’s the recipe for a CEO’s success? A study led by Professor of Entrepreneurship and Finance, Steven N. Kaplan at the University of Chicago’s Booth School of Business and Professor of Finance, Morten Sorenson, at Copenhagen Business School, analyzed 2,600 executive assessments and thirty characteristics for top executives.

Key Takeaways

Here are some of the highlights that resonated with me…

I. Current Trends in PE Impacting the Operating Partner Role

  • Pressure to create value from LPs is pushing GPs to cut HQ costs and push them out to portfolio companies, compressing growth trajectory for many OPs
  • More emphasis on industry specialists and ex CEOs with specific industry backgrounds

Looking Outside of the Education Box by Todd Hand

Idea Bulb Concept Drawing on Blackboard

“Should we look exclusively within education, or should we consider people outside education?”

Some version of that question is asked more and more in our pre-search discussions as we launch senior level executive searches in the for-profit education sectors.

Though my search practice is in education, the early part of my career in recruiting was in the technology sector. You name it, I’ve worked with that type of tech company; eCommerce, B2B, B2C, mobile, software, hardware, cleantech, material science, semiconductor, etc..

My advise when and where to look for leadership outside of education depends on several factors. However, there are no hard and fast rules so often each search should be examined on a case by case basis.

5 Things Private Equity Firms Must Consider When Their Portfolio Companies Hire C-Suite Executives by Todd Hand

This article was originally posted on LinkedIn

The vast majority of my clients for C-level searches are at a private equity backed companies in the education sectors (K-12, higher ed, and corporate learning). While private equity partners are some of the most networked people you’ll ever meet, it is not possible to know every star, especially the rising ones. Moreover, private equity partners are often investing outside their “sweet spot” of knowledge and networks; this is one reason why they prefer to work with a search firm.
Hiring the best executive can make all the difference to the portfolio company, and eventually getting the best ROI. My team and I at BSG Team Ventures have conducted over 200 executive searches for private equity firms and their portfolio organizations. In my experience, these are five often overlooked but essential considerations when companies in their portfolios search for executives.

The Importance of “Discovery” in Executive Search: Measure twice, cut once by Todd Hand

keyhole

This article was originally posted on LinkedIn

Over the past year, I’ve written articles that speak to the strategies that significantly help when searching for C-Suite executives. I’ve discussed looking for CEOs and CFOs, the difference between Marketing and Sales Leadership, and have even tried to demystify what a VP of Business Development is actually supposed to do. The point I always come back to is that to manage a successful search, to find the best executives for positions, real heavy lifting must be done before candidates are interviewed. This part of the search is called “discovery,” and without it, the search can go astray and drag on.
