NEW YORK–()–Russell Reynolds Associates, one of the world’s leading executive search firms, announced today the publication of the latest installment of its video series, Leadership in the Field: Interviews with Global Leaders. The video, produced with award-winning business leadership writer Roger O. Crockett, features George Barrett, Chairman and CEO of Cardinal Health, a Fortune 100 health care services company. Barrett served as Vice Chairman of Cardinal and CEO of its Healthcare Supply Chain Services business from January 2008 to August 2009, when the company concluded a sweeping reorganization that resulted in Barrett’s promotion to the top job. His steady oversight in the dual role of Chairman and CEO was a factor in the board’s decision against a shareholder proposal to split up his jobs. In the interview Barrett explains why the trend towards separation works for some companies and not for others.
For more than 40 years, Russell Reynolds Associates has helped companies identify, assess and recruit leaders for their organizations and boards of directors. The goal of Leadership in the Field is to extend the expertise developed through this vast recruiting experience to help leaders share and discuss their views on effective leadership. Each video consists of a brief in-person interview with a chief executive, chairman of a corporate board or prominent thought leader on leadership and board governance issues. To view the video with Cardinal Health’s Barrett and others, including interviews with Heineken CEO Jean-François van Boxmeer, McDonald’s Chairman Andy McKenna and BBC Trust Chairman Lord Patten, visit www.russellreynolds.com and www.rocrockett.com.
