The Corporate Executive Board Introduces New Strategic Research Program for Senior Recruiting Executives
WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 30, 2000--The Corporate Executive Board (''CEB'') (Nasdaq/NM:EXBD - news) today announced the launch of the Recruiting Roundtable, a new subscription-based program serving the strategic research needs of senior recruiting executives in large global corporations. This latest program continues the expansion of CEB's research coverage across the major functional areas of the corporate organizational structure. ''Rapidly perfecting labor markets around the world, and ever increasing dependence of the large corporation on key talent are major catalysts for launching this program,'' said Jay McGonigle, CEB's Chief Executive Officer.

''In developing the research focus and service mix of the Recruiting Roundtable, we were privileged to work with an incredible group of Charter Advisors, including senior recruiting executives from Cisco Systems, The Walt Disney Company, Hewlett-Packard, British Airways, IBM, The Goldman Sachs Group and Johnson & Johnson. Inaugural membership meetings will be convened in Europe and North America across the first and second quarters of 2001.''

Mr. McGonigle continued, ''In this new program, as in all of our endeavors, our mission is to increase the effectiveness of each member executive; working with them to discover, document and teach the best new thinking and strategies from across industries and around the world. The larger ambition for this work is to establish an intellectual center for the recruiting executive - a locus for research, education and best practices in staffing the large corporation. By leveraging the knowledge we derive both within and across the major corporate functions, we ultimately hope to help shape strategic debate and to accelerate tactical implementation in even the most progressive corporations.''

The Corporate Executive Board Company is a leading provider of best practices research and analysis focusing on corporate strategy, operations and general management issues. CEB provides its integrated set of services currently to a membership of over 1,500 of the world's largest and most prestigious corporations, including more than 70% of the Fortune 500. These services are provided on an annual subscription basis and include best practices research studies, executive education seminars, customized research briefs and web-based access to a library of over 120,000 corporate best practices, personalized content, and decision-support tools.
