Gail R. Meneley Joins Advisory Board

CHICAGO, IL – March 19,2020 – Shields Meneley Partners, the worldwide leader in career transition services designed exclusively for C-Suite executives, announced that Co-Founder, Gail Meneley, has stepped away from the day-to-day operations of the firm to join its esteemed advisory board.

“It has been an honor to develop deep, trusted relationships with our exceptional clients during times of professional transition, help them regain their confidence, and to find a new sense of purpose and fulfillment in their careers and personal lives,” says Gail. “Today, I am happy to share that I have embarked on my own career and life transition that includes joining the revered advisory board of Shields Meneley Partners.”

With Gail’s transition to the advisory board, Shields Meneley Partners is now wholly owned by Co-Founder Hugh Shields and Principal Robert (Bob) J. Ryan. Hugh and Bob will manage operations of Shields Meneley Partners and lead the organization into the future with innovative services that respond to demographic and economic trends.

“It is a natural progression for Gail to now join our advisory board to share her experience and wisdom as she enjoys greater flexibility in other parts of her life and we wish her much joy and happiness as this next chapter unfolds,” says Hugh. “The future remains bright for Shields Meneley Partners and we continue to deliver the same exceptional service to our clients.”

Gail and Hugh created Shields Meneley Partners nearly 20 years ago when they recognized no other firm provided the appropriate level of peer advice, counsel, and range of services to help top executives navigate highly visible and complex career transitions. Since then, Shields Meneley Partners has grown to guide more than 1,700 C-Suite executives in their career transitions and counts more than 200 companies as leadership development clients.
