June 13, 2018 – Toronto-based executive search firm Caldwell has announced the launch of an offering that pairs clients with agile executive talent on an as-needed basis. The firm describes its new Value Creation Advisory Solutions offering as a unique, flexible and cost-effective approach to creating value and solving core business challenges that require external expertise. It is part of the firm’s broader Agile Talent Solutions platform.
“Even with a highly accomplished leadership team, nearly every company could benefit from an objective, outside viewpoint from time to time,” said John Wallace, chief executive officer. “Our Value Creation Advisory Solution was created precisely to provide this unbiased, expert external guidance, and help our clients effectively execute on strategy by providing a mechanism for accountability, in addition to bringing best practices in terms of process and alignment.”
In an effort to unlock new value creation opportunities, Caldwell pairs clients with external talent on an as-needed basis. In most cases, said the firm, an advisory solution is a more nimble and cost-effective approach than an outside consulting firm or traditional operating partner at a private equity firm.

The firm’s external advisors are experienced operating executives and corporate leaders with subject matter and industry knowledge who have expressed an interest in providing their expertise to help other companies, said Caldwell. “They are well known to us, having worked with Caldwell as clients, candidates, and sources,” said the firm.
Value Creation Advisory Services assignments can range from pop-up help, requiring one or two “expert advice calls,” or a longer-term engagement involving weekly calls or meetings over an extended period, said the firm. The offering can involve assistance with detailed strategy development, efficient execution or ensuring institutional learning and best practice building, among other areas.
Caldwell is available to help clients handpick the individuals best suited to accomplishing their business objectives and will continue to monitor and support the relationship on an ongoing basis, said the firm. Additionally, as the client’s needs change from project to project, or even within a project, Caldwell can supplement the appropriate advisors by industry or area of expertise.
