Executive career transition & outplacement

Executive career transition designed to connect & secure clients with their next step-up opportunity


Rialto discreetly advises some of the most senior global leaders and executives to navigate today’s complex, uncertain and ever-changing operating and business environments, through customised executive career transition and executive outplacement programmes.

We understand what it takes to operate at CEO, board- and senior leader-level and have a firm grasp on how the market for senior strategic opportunities works.

Rialto partners with successful senior executives who are looking for a new challenge. We recognise that our clients do not always have the time or space to consider the opportunities that might be open to them and increasingly require:

  • insights into the new market horizons opening up for leadership skills
  • strategic positioning of their personal brand and reputation
  • valuable connections to open doors
  • leadership profiling and benchmarking to identify new routes to secure their next challenge

Executive outplacement at its best – “Rialto Signature”


Our innovative executive career transition methodology has been developed over 25 years and draws upon extensive research and the skilled application of high-potential client-profiling. We help our clients to make informed, evidence-based decisions before entering their chosen market.

Upon successful career transition into a new role, we continue our partnership approach by providing coaching at agreed points to accelerate delivery of key strategic priorities and to mitigate both personal and organisational risk.

Enabling our clients to make their next crucial career transition


Having worked with Rialto to develop their reputation and brand profile as well as align their skills with future market and leadership needs, our clients successfully secure their next senior position, achieving a promotion and/or increased earnings/responsibilities.

Others have changed career direction, addressed work-life balance issues or been able to capitalise on entrepreneurial trends. We have also assisted clients in developing portfolio careers, securing non-executive director positions, starting up new business ventures and shaping investment portfolios.

We know what good leadership looks like today and in the future and, coupled with our own intellectual property, we can create access to the highest level opportunities in private or public sector as well as non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

We help our clients to make informed, evidence-based decisions before entering their chosen market
