Board placement

In today’s world, corporate governance best practices require unparalleled focus, agility, and depth of experience. Boards of Directors now face a high degree of scrutiny and operate in a challenging economic environment, making it vital that the best people be placed into these crucial roles. With some of the scrutiny Boards face surrounding diversity, particularly women, we are well known for placing qualified female executives to Boards seeking greater representation.


Our network extends over 20,000 people worldwide and we have a 99% level of success and retention of all the Board placements we have made in the last five years.

  • Educational institutions

When conducting Board searches, our team takes into consideration culture, ethics, compensation, and the unique skills that characterize candidates that best suit our clients’ needs and only our Partners run all of our Board searches within the firm.
