Go Beyond the Expected
A reception, plaque, golf clubs, crystal bowl, perhaps a video: these are the traditional retirement gifts for executives. And while this gift may be a safe bet, for the truly exceptional CEO, a gift with heart and meaning expresses special care and appreciation.
Celebrate the Story
A case of champagne or a luxury vacation might seem like a good idea for a retirement gift. But consider a gift that commemorates career achievements and favorite memories. A tribute that your CEO can’t buy off the shelf.
The Average CEO tenure has greatly reduced since the 1990’s, from an average of 10 years to 5.5 years today! Present a personalized gift that celebrates many years of vision, leadership and accomplishments.
Open the Door
When you’re responsible for deciding on such an important gift, consider making the surprise inclusive. Reach out to key executives for ideas and memorabilia that will be important to preserve the career accomplishments, convey care and become a legacy.
