Working Remotely as a C-level Executive – Opportunities and Considerations

Updated: Dec 29, 2021

Last Thursday, on October 2, 2020, CEOWorld magazine published an article I wrote on “Working Remotely as a C-level Executive – Opportunities and Considerations.”

This new article is designed for designed for CEOs, C-level and senior executives, dealing with the negatives of the Covid-19/Coronavirus pandemic on many businesses  and executive employment situations, but also giving rise to new opportunities.

The article offers illustrations of how remote zoom meetings are aiding non-profit groups and client development, and then moves to how those same techniques are aiding C-level and senior executives conducting nation-wide job searches for new executive positions.

Then, my article suggests techniques to build a comfort level with prospective employers, for those executives who would like to take up an executive employment opportunity as a remote CEO or C-level executive, including the following negotiation strategies:

  • Negotiate initial executive consulting work to get to lead to your next CEO job offer;

  • Negotiate for temporary relocation to build company comfort level;

  • Use hazards of air and distance travel to reduce on site presence even with temporary relocation;

  • Make executive compensation and equity concessions now to gain the remote position, with the expectation of being made whole in a later retention agreement;

  • Assure your remote contract provides requisite online connectivity and necessary tools to enable your remote operation.

This was my 30th article published in CEOWORLD over the last five years. Previously, the editor advised that I can use “Featured in the CEOWOLRD magazine” and the CEOWORLD “Logo” on my website and add CEOWORLD magazine in my LinkedIn profile’s “Experience Section” as an “Opinion Columnist.” and authority in the field.  See

With more than 12.4+ million-page views, CEOWORLD magazine is the world’s leading business magazine written strictly for CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, senior management executives, business leaders, and high net worth individuals worldwide.

It is my hope that this article on the new COVID-19 inspired opportunities opening up across the US to CEOs, C-level and senior executives is timely and will be of benefit.   Hopefully, the topics I discuss including to conduct nationwide job searches, to interview and take positions in desired urban centers and also in more others locations, and to do all that without the need to even leave your home office or local satellite office, and finally, the chance to work remotely and effectively and to negotiate the right terms to secure this desired employment – will be of benefit to the CEO, C-level and senior executive clients I represent.  Feel free to tweet or share this article.
