Two part answer:
1. Have a meeting and openly discuss the situation with your executive:
"It came to my attention that you are interviewing with a new company. As you continue with your search process would you be open to sharing with me what it is that you are looking for in a new role or a new employer? If the opportunities you are looking for are things that our company might be able to offer, would you be interested in considering us having a discussion about them?"
Having this type of conversation and being able to follow through effectively requires longer conversation that is beyond the scope of this forum. I offer this opening statement as a possible direction for you to consider thinking about.
2. This situation is likely a symptom of your organization missing a Key Talent Retention Strategy. Talent Retention Strategy must first align with you broader Talent Management and your Business Strategy. During your next strategy review you might want to put this item on your agenda and discuss it with your executive team. Your Head of HR might be able to guide you through this process.
Alternatively, consider soliciting the help of Mentors Guild Members in building your Talent Management Infrastructure.
