David Sole & Associates to merge with School for CEOs
24 May 2017
David Sole is to merge his two business interests. From June 1, David Sole & Associates will become part of School for CEOs, the executive development specialists he co-founded with Patrick Macdonald, former CEO of John Menzies, in 2011.
David Sole & Associates was established ten years ago to meet a specific need in terms of coaching and leadership for senior executives and board/team facilitation. As that business grew alongside School for CEOs, it became apparent that the businesses complement each other offering clients wider support. It is for that reason that the decision was made to merge David Sole & Associates with School for CEOs.
He said: ‘As the School for CEOs continues to grow and there is obvious overlap with the work I do as David Sole & Associates it made great sense to bring these two growing businesses together.
‘Our programmes have proven increasingly popular and are resonating with senior leaders in the changing world within which we live. We have a number of new and exciting initiatives in the pipeline to add to our existing portfolio which will further strengthen our position in the market.’
From 1st June he will lead the experienced team at the new-look School for CEOs as Managing Partner continuing to deliver Executive Coaching and programme content to current and new clients. Patrick Macdonald will become Non-Executive Chairman of the combined businesses.
