ChapmanCG is pleased to partner with the Leadership Pipeline Institute (LPI), a leading global provider of leadership and performance solutions. The Leadership Pipeline concept is perceived to have been one of the most influential leadership models over the last two decades. A significant number of Fortune 500 companies have successfully implemented the Leadership Pipeline concept as their main leadership infrastructure for selecting, growing, and assessing leaders at all levels. The business has grown by 400% over the past five years. The company is dual headquartered in the United States and Europe, with regional hubs across the world. The Institute (LPI) is the preferred partner for organizations wanting to strengthen their leadership and specialist pipelines including the design of succession and talent planning processes and the mobilization of leaders for major business-critical transformation projects. The Leadership Pipeline Institute has a team of highly qualified, multicultural, and multilingual consultants around the world to support global clients. We are proud to help further develop this network of consultants by offering HR talent the opportunity to be part of this incredible journey in the role of Vice President and Partner.
