My Merryck mentor’s driving mission was to help me succeed. Trusting him gave me the confidence to work through a variety of issues with a very capable and seasoned professional whose only concern was me. The best analogy I can think of is the relationship between a golfer and his caddy. Except in this case, the caddy was a former champion who had played the game at its highest levels.

The single most important factor in a business's success or failure is the effectiveness of its leadership. Since 1997, Merryck & Co has partnered with hundreds of CEOs and their direct reports to provide trusted, confidential
and individualized on-the-job guidance to key business leaders.
With a focus on profits, performance and personal leadership, we help each of our
clients create maximum value for his or her organization, as well as for his or her development as a leader. We are never remedial. Said simply, we help the best get better.
I was something of a cowboy, running the largest business in the company. My mentor helped me not only as a successful unit leader, but in partnering with the board and peers at the highest levels of the organization.
For a leader to truly excel, he or she must effectively address all aspects of the business: strategic, operational, cultural and personal. That four-way intersection is a place of pressure,
isolation and complexity that no one can fully understand without having lived there.
At Merryck & Co, we carefully select, train
and deploy as mentors only former leaders who have themselves run complex businesses as a CEO, President, or division leader.
When I took on a senior leadership role for a major pharmaceutical company, turbulent market conditions required wholesale change within the business. Merryck’s focus on strategic and operational issues helped me lead to a successful outcome. The perspective challenge that I gained from my mentor helped me attain excellent business results and equipped me for my next role as a public company CEO.
