Chairs, Non-Executive Directors and Advisory Roles

The drive for independent perspective and guidance on boards has seen a surge in the demand for the appointment of chairs and non-executive directors (NEDs). As such, there’s a heightened demand for high quality executive search services to source talent to fill these roles, and its an area which Gerard Daniels enjoys particular success.

Creating a diverse Board is also of increased importance, and influences executive search. Chairs and NEDs are expected to bring increasingly broad skill sets to their roles, with experience extending to areas such as risk, technology and innovation. To support high-performing boards, businesses in all industries are also calling out for greater board representation across age, gender, nationality, industry experience and cultural background.

Thanks to our global reach and decades in executive search, Gerard Daniels has an excellent track record in confidentially identifying and appointing high calibre and experienced candidates. Finding the Cinderella for the shoe. The perfect addition within the matrix of experience, skills and diversity of the existing board members.
