Board Director Hiring

Boards today face more complex challenges than ever. They must balance many issues, from shareholder activism to cybersecurity, and compliance issues to diversity and innovation. As such, finding the appropriate candidates with the right qualifications who represent your company’s values is essential to the wellbeing of any business.

Egon Zehnder’s Approach to Board Recruitment

With more than 50 years of experience in executive search, Egon Zehnder’s team knows what it takes to put together an effective board director hiring strategy. We also know that no one person has all the different types of expertise a modern business needs, which is why recruiting a board which represents 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. Egon Zehnder’s board recruitment process is also deeply committed to diversity and inclusion and feel passionate about bringing the value of multiple views and differences into the boardroom. Our global network of consultants is committed to finding not just the obvious candidates but those who are less known. As a result, we can match your business to deeply qualified leaders who are armed with the skills to handle today’s biggest business issues.
