Teneo is a senior-led advisory firm with deep collective experience working at the highest echelons of the public and private sectors. Our team has a rich knowledge base and global network of relationships that we bring to bear on behalf of our clients every day. Our team is augmented by our Senior Advisors which include Senator George Mitchell (Former US Senate Majority Leader and US Special Envoy for Middle East Peace); Lord Davies of Abersoch (Former Chairman and CEO of Standard Chartered Bank and UK Trade Minister); Harvey Pitt (Former SEC Chairman); Dr. Stephen Davis (Associate Director of the Harvard Law School Programs on Corporate Governance and Institutional Investors), and many others.
In keeping with its focus on CEOs, Teneo has developed an operating philosophy called ‘The Teneo Way.’ It is based on the concept that, while the fundamental roles and responsibilities of modern leaders have not changed, the environment in which they develop and execute strategy has been radically transformed. These environmental changes make it harder than ever for a CEO to maintain the integrity of his or her strategy, and they demand a new mode of strategic counsel that:
• Looks at the world through the CEO’s eyes
• Is always senior-led and highly specialized
• Ignores traditional silos
• Gives chief executives the ability to see around corners and lead their organizations deftly
Teneo has also established the Teneo Leadership Institute in partnership with The Johnson School of Business at Cornell University to help develop Teneo leaders and other executives.
Teneo annually donates a significant amount of time and money to a wide range of philanthropic organizations through the Teneo Foundation.
