Building Board-Level Experience

A Board of Directors which has the competencies, experience and intellectual capital to address the toughest strategic and operational challenges is invaluable for any growing business.

We combine our talent matching skills with our extensive network of industry leaders, founders and investors to find our clients the best people to fill executive and non-executive director roles. Our experience in placing CEOs and their CXO teams has given us a deep understanding of the Board-CEO interface and the critical role it plays in developing a successful leadership culture.

Our services include Board recruitment, Director/Board assessment and evaluation, psychometric testing, compensation benchmarking and succession planning.

I was recruited by David for the role of Chair of Mixergy a cleantech start-up company entering its growth phase. David was professional throughout the process, he not only kept me updated on my progress though the recruitment steps but also offered guidance on how VC led investment boards approached the challenge of securing a chair. David continued to stay in contact after the selection decision was made to ensure that my first month in Mixergy was a positive experience also checking in with the other board members – excellent stakeholder management. From initial contact, through the interview process, contract discussions and starting the role, David was supportive, engaging and effective. He delivered an excellent fit between client side requirements and my skill set and aspirations, great work!
