Chair and Non-Executive Director Search

The need for independent perspective and guidance on boards has driven growth in the appointment of chairs and non-executive directors (NEDs) in recent years. There has also been a surge in the demand for high quality executive search services to source talent to fill these roles.

Our clients value the importance we place on confidentiality, professionalism and communication.

Board diversity is another area that continues to influence executive search. Chairs and NEDs are expected to bring increasingly broad skill sets to their roles, with experience extending to areas like 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.
