When I checked the dictionary, I found examples of 'of' only. However, when I used it in the following sentence:

What lies ahead of our company, ...

it didn't make sense to use 'of' for an entity, and I've been advised to use 'for' instead.

  • Hello, Ohood. You should check the other dictionary (yes, there are more than two good online dictionaries: I'm making the point that 'the dictionary' is imprecise and unhelpful here) in situations like this. ODO gives a relevant example (further examples, number 5). – Edwin Ashworth Feb 13 '18 at 9:13

"Ahead of our company" suggests something that is outside of your company but somehow blocking it's path.

"Ahead for our company" implies the discussion of projections for the future of your company.
