Meet Warren Rutherford, Principal at The Executive Suite

Better known in his part of Cape Cod as The Manager, Warren Rutherford has had a lifelong career in helping businesses succeed and create positive impacts within their community. Warren’s consulting expertise has allowed him to help several hundred small to medium-sized businesses and municipalities throughout Massachusetts and beyond.

Warren's career has been focused on helping business owners grow their company:

  • Led executive leadership and management coaching
  • Created an executive training program
  • Conducted consulting for SMB and municipalities 
  • Amassed several certification and accreditations

All of these were building blocks that created a strong foundation for what The Executive Suite offers to clients. Warren found a passion for helping private and family-owned businesses. He saw the need for the growing number of businesses led by baby boomers and Gen Xers to have a transition plan. Beyond that, his love for understanding senior-level leaders helped him create a niche in the executive search side of transition planning.
