Trewstar Corporate Board Services

Our Differentiators 

We offer the benefits of an outstanding, pre-vetted network coupled with an unparalleled process.

Network

There are many reasons our process works so well, but the top of the list is the strength of our candidates. Because we invest in our relationships with top-caliber candidates, we can be nimble and responsive to our clients’ needs. There is no door we cannot open and no candidate we cannot reach.

The number of clients who add two directors at the same time, or within a year or so of our original assignment, is one testament to the quality and depth of our candidate slates. A second is our re-nomination rate of 97%.
 

Client Service

We start with a transparent and concise engagement letter and will not surprise you with marked-up expenses or monthly administrative charges. We have worked on many assignments that are straightforward, but we can also handle a good curveball – from activists to disagreements on the spec, to a CEO change. We have seen it all and will provide counsel throughout the process. Through our unique combination of corporate board experience and specialization at the board level, we have developed a refined judgment that sets us apart. 

We are humbled by and proud of our exceptional re-engagement rate.
 

Unique Approach

We create a tailored list of candidates who are interested, qualified and have no date or business conflicts. This vetting saves our clients time and effort. In addition, we recommend that our clients interview women and diverse male candidates first. This approach stands out above all others as the best way to add the most talented diverse candidates to the boardroom.

25% of our placements have been people of color, even when the intended focus was solely on gender diversity.
 

Experience

Our dedication to client service and process execution was instilled in our team leaders long before they entered the search industry. In addition to deep business experience, our partners have served as corporate directors for more than two decades and have led searches for their own boards. Our governance insights derive not from secondary sources, but from years in the boardroom. Now, 130+ board searches later, the Trewstar team has honed their craft like no others.
