CEO Advisory Service

Many CEOs of privately held, growth stage companies say they could benefit from an advisor who has sat in their seat, understands their challenges, and can help them achieve the success they envision with less risk. An ally who can act as a sounding board and help them navigate the challenges of setting strategy, operating day to day, and achieving their vision for the company; and who can tap into a rich community of proven experts who can move the business forward.

Examples of Newport Advisor Projects include:

  • Profitability analysis and improvement
  • Acquisition strategy, targeting and integration
  • Capital readiness: for example, assessing whether the company is ready for private equity investment, then developing and executing plans to take on private equity at a favorable valuation
  • Fixing operating problems and broken processes

Newport's Board Experience

For smaller companies, our board work often starts with advising the CEO about the need for a board, how to establish it, and ways of implementing it to benefit the CEO and their company. We have extensive experience in counseling with existing boards on governance, succession plans, and ‘C-suite’ executive performance issues. Newport is a great choice when thinking about having a board or looking for an outside director. Outside directors bring independent thinking and market experience that can be invaluable for a company as it tries to scale, improve performance, and prepare for financial transactions.

Newport partners have extensive experience assisting companies with governance and risk management via service as seated board directors. Our partners have been selected to serve on over over 90 commercial boards.

We have the capability and deep experience to:

  • Integrate into operational leadership quickly and keep operations running smoothly

Newport Partners are a known quantity; every partner is a senior-level operating executive closely vetted before being admitted to the firm. Newport’s nation-wide partnership is composed of experts in a wide range of industries that assist the interim executive with developing the best solutions to client problems. Newport executives, individually or as a team, bring experience, objectivity, and credibility to interim roles.
