Independent Director Search

We assist chairs and nominating committees with broader governance issues, and specifically in the selection of independent chairs and directors for a board or council.

Effective board performance requires a range of skills and personal attributes; achieving the right mix is critical for business success. Non-executive directors should make a specific and effective contribution to a company’s strategic and operational success. We operate closely with clients to identify and appoint directors who will provide balance to the board, working to achieve an optimum mix of talent, skills, experience and representation.

Unlike executive search assignments, board search involves working much more openly; a different level of confidentiality is required compared with the early stages of executive search.

We have successfully helped to develop and appoint chairs and board members across the entire spectrum of industries, and for several initial public offerings.
