Board Director Hiring

Boards today face more complex challenges than ever. They must balance many issues, from shareholder activism to cybersecurity and from compliance issues to diversity and innovation. With our more than 50 years of experience in executive search, we know what it takes to put together an effective board. We also know that no one person has all the types of expertise needed today, which is why bringing together a diverse set of perspectives and backgrounds is more critical than ever. Our clients — who include many of the most prestigious and innovative organizations in the world — trust us to find the right fit, wherever that search may take us. We are also deeply committed to diversity and inclusion and feel passionately about bringing the value of multiple views and differences into the boardroom.

With a truly global network of consultants and a commitment to finding not just the obvious candidates but also those who are less known, we are able to bring you deeply qualified leaders with the skills to handle today’s biggest issues.
