Boards are only as strong as the people who serve on them.

In challenging times, organisations must work harder to find and recruit board members who are better qualified, collaborative and proactive , in their approach to governance, strategy and risk.

Our Board & CEO Practice has been supporting leading organisations for over twenty years, identifying, attracting and securing exceptional top leadership talent – recruiting the best, wherever they may be.

The clients we serve are diverse from: Fortune 500, FTSE 100 and AIM-listed companies, major national corporations, international groups, private equity-backed businesses, family-owned and managed organisations and a range of public sector and small and medium sized enterprises – working closely with them to secure their next Chief Executive, Finance Director or other Executive Director.

However, a board’s effectiveness can be significantly reduced by such issues as personal differences, lack of strategic alignment, or failures of structure and governance, so we also provide a full range of complimentary board services including board assessment, board development and succession planning to help our clients ensure that this does not happen.
