Why Boardroom Performance Group?

The late 1980s and early 1990s was a troubled period for the banking industry with investors, regulators, and directors all demanding immediate action. Larry Cabaldon was among the top-level advisors then engaged by some of America’s biggest banks to conduct performance and talent analysis of major divisions and subsidiaries. Based on these successful projects, he was referred by the California Bankers Association, accounting, and law firms to community banks, regulators and investors to implement ‘Board Turnaround’ programs and he was successful in creating innovative ways not only to assess but implement major changes in attitudes, behaviors, and results – generally within 90 days. Utilizing his expertise in human resources, executive search and individual and group motivational techniques, Larry’s challenging approach was to focus executives and directors on “high performance” in operations, acquisitions, mergers, and consolidations in order to meet their fiduciary responsibilities.

In 2008, anticipating today’s economic difficulties, Larry formed Boardroom Performance Group for the purpose of bringing investors, board members, and executive teams together to recognize a simple reality: everyone in the Boardroom needs to raise their level of performance to aggressively respond to the board pressures caused by the economic crisis.
