Chief Communications Officers (CCOs) can have many responsibilities in the company, including corporate communications and media relations. However, a large part of what makes their roles so important is their responsibility to manage the company’s branding and reputation, ensuring that the public views the business favorably.
As a leading executive search firm, Keller assists clients across a broad range of industries and sectors in sourcing, placing, and retaining communications professionals with the skills to promote and protect the organization’s reputation as well as oversee the communication channels between the business and the public.
Prior to conducting the search, Keller partners with clients to examine their business environment and determine how their communication plan aligns with their business needs and goals. We also examine their organizational culture and meet with stakeholders to gain insight into the skills the executive should have and what expectations they must meet.
With a search plan established, our team of professional headhunters begins to source the best communications leaders. All potential candidates undergo a rigorous assessment involving background, criminal, and reference checks. We also assess talents for factors beyond their merits, including personality, work ethic, management styles, motivational drivers, and cultural alignment.
Part of what makes our searches a success is our commitment to diversity and inclusion. All candidates are treated fairly and without any bias in relation to their age, belief, ethnicity, and gender.
Our team of executive recruiters works with clients operating in a wide range of industries and sectors to source and hire top communications professionals for the role of Chief Communications Officer. Some of the industries we partner with include:
