We are set apart by the fact that our partners have benefited from over two decades of corporate board experience and have appointed numerous directors to our own boards. Our governance insights derive not from secondary sources, but from our own years in the board room.


The Foundation

We begin every search with a conversation to learn about your culture and board needs. We are highly attuned to sensitivities around boardroom composition and refreshment and how those issues drive collegiality and effectiveness. This understanding allows us to help you design the best specification and most strategic process for your search.

The Search

We scour all available resources from publications to industry conferences to our longstanding connections in the corporate world, including fellow board members, clients, and industry leaders to find exceptional candidates who meet your specifications. The result is a broad list of the best candidates – not just the usual suspects.

The Evaluation

We personally meet and screen all of our candidates and present you with a tailored list. All candidates will be vetted and interested in your opportunity. 

The Scheduling

We then handle the entire scheduling process from start to finish.
