Bringing forward passionate and diverse Board Leaders
The effective operation of a Board is under more scrutiny than ever. Appointments of seniority require a highly targeted search driven by specialists with the knowledge, experience and strength to identify and work with appropriately qualified non-executive candidates. Our specialist researchers bring that focus and dedicated resource needed to create diverse, robust and interesting lists which align with our clients’ skills matrix needs.
For 35 years our dedicated Board practice has been finding, supporting and guiding non-executive leaders in Boardrooms across multiple geographies and industries. Our deep understanding of governance complexity in national and global environments allows us to identify talent as well as assess, review and support boards in maximising the impact for their organisations, whether they be commercial, public sector or in civil society.
We have the experience, knowledge and well-proven processes, augmented by our award-winning diversity initiatives, to ensure excellence in all that we do. Our approach delivers the results needed and we are very proud of this, growing diversity of boards and non-executive roles across the commercial, public and not-for-profit sectors.
We successfully support the appointment of 250 Chair and non-executive roles every year with an increasingly diverse backgrounds, demonstrating our credentials in this specialist executive search function.

Board capability in a post-Covid world
The impact of COVID on boards has been far reaching, altering working practices, operations and governance in the short to medium term. At the start of this year and with the beginning of the great vaccine roll out, we noticed an opportunity to focus on the Board view, what has been learnt and how organisations might be looking to the future. We have seen fundamental shifts in both the way boards operate and how they need to be structured to be fit for purpose in the future.
Since early 2021, we have asked various leaders of the FTSE 250 their thoughts and we are delighted to share our research and insights into what future board leadership requires.
