we are LEADERS

passionate about helping leaders and their organizations solve problems.

CEOs, Boards and Organizations need resources from time-to-time that have the capacity to both guide and execute change. They need individuals that can quickly ascertain reality, co-create needed change, and drive meaningful outcomes. CxORE provides this resource through three engagement options: extend, guide, and fill-in. 


WHAT we do   



the capabilities of you or your leadership team through our unique CxO approach. By blending c-level functions, our seasoned leaders are able to bring immense value while fractionally engaged.



on an interim basis when vacancies occur or when you or your leader simply need an extended break. We’re not interested in babysitting during this time but rather creating spring-boards for positive outcomes.



by helping you through periods of “Lonely at the Top.” There are times when a fresh perspective and insight is needed from someone who has the experience to help you navigate challenges and opportunities.

the WAY we work

Engagement Levels

CxORE's CEOs and senior leaders commit to sharing both expertise and experience with leaders and organizations by combining three distinct elements:

CxO Deployment

We’ve found that most client engagements require someone with the bandwidth to touch various c-level functions which is usually precipitated by the delta between the perceived challenge versus actual challenge.

This versatility can only be provided through those with that range of experience, CEOs.

Fractional Time Commitment

We counteract expensive long-term engagements through fractional time commitments. This allows you to buy only the amount of the resource needed for a specific duration.

Engagements can range from ½ day a week to 5 days per week for a three month minimum with 6-12 months being the typical maximum.

CxAdvisor Support

Each deployed CxO is supported internally by a CxAdvisor (CxA). This individual is charged with being a sounding board and back-up to the deployed CxO.

Every CxA holds the same qualifications as a CxO and is paired-up based upon either complimentary skills or industry experience.


WHEN to engage us

Having financial, operational, or administrative problems?  Do you have a solution ready to be implemented?  Need help preventing problems from becoming a crisis?

Crisis Looming?

Are strategic, financial, operational, or administrative problems on the horizon? We're pretty good at solving problems before they reach the crisis stage. Just don't wait until it's too late.
How many times have you wished for a clone?  Have you ever put your staff leaders in that role?  How often have you been disappointed?  Ready for it to work?

Need Another You?

How many times have you wished for another you that could be engaged without steep learning curves and disappointment? Although not you, we leverage our depth and experience to come close.
Is your organization growing, declining, or ready to go to the next level?  Do you have the necessary talent?  Are you prepared to deal with the change?

Life Cycle Changing?

Growing, declining, or ready to go to the next level but don't have the necessary experience available? It's a pretty good bet that one of our CxOs have been there and knows how to proceed.
Feeling maxed out in both capability and time?  Is your organization performance floundering because of it?

Bandwidth Overextended?

Maxed out in both capability and time? Most leaders feel the stress of having to work both "in it" and "on it." Trying to do both usually fails. Let's fill the gap and give you some breathing room.
Do you have a trusted adviser that can help you through daily leadership challenges?  Has that individual walked in your shoes before?  Need a confidant that can be trusted for sound advice?

Lonely at the Top?

Need a confidant who has walked in your shoes to strategize or help solve problems with? We thrive on helping other leaders through daily trials and tribulations of being at the top.

Need Time Off?

Life happens, and sometimes an extended break to recharge your batteries or attend to personal needs is necessary but someone needs to lead the organization! We'll maintain momentum and move needle focused.

Transition Imminent?

Avoiding taking the dreaded task of replacing a leader for fear of the unknown or inconvenience? We'll step in and keep things running, allowing for the time to find the right fit.
Need an interim CEO or CxO?  Have you positioned this event as an opportunity to enhance?  Do you need time to find that perfect person?  Need help figuring it out?

Have a Vacancy?

For whatever reason, you need a CEO or CxO and don't have a qualified successor identified. Searches take 6 month. What skills are needed? Who will lead on an interim basis? We will step in and create a springboard for a new leader.
