Chairs, Chief Executives and Boards face several challenges. Assembling a winning leadership team which turns a good company into a great one; formulating and executing a growth strategy which takes the company to the next level; activist demands to crystallise a short-term gain; takeover interest from private equity; and the correct messaging to build wide support amongst stakeholders, are just some of them.

Buchanan Harvey & Co. is retained by the Chairs, Chief Executives and Boards of leading companies, as a trusted adviser and sounding board. The central theme is doing the right thing for the business, in the face of conflicting demands and advice. This requires perceptiveness, insights into executive behaviour, expertise in messaging, honesty and wisdom.
