About this event

79% of CEO roles are filled from within the company. Someone is groomed for the job. Yet, CEOs have personalities, personas, and unique characteristics that make them a "great CEO" in ways that are truly irreplicable. Athena member Tammy Fawcett has been working with the CEO of Archerpoint for over a year to "fill his shoes". He stepped back and is taking a more "supporting cast" role, while she has taken the reigns across most of the enterprise as the defacto CEO. Greg is outspoken, a lover of the academics of the role, and a professor at heart, a natural sales guy, and a big personality. Join us we explore with Tammy how she is not filling his shoes, but rather defining her persona and her greatness in other ways, bringing the team along to follow her, where they once followed Greg. What has she learned along the way, what continues to challenge her, and how is she thinking about the future Tammy Fawcett as her own unique "great CEO".
