Board Placement

We Identify Your Leaders

If a board of directors’ purpose is to provide the corporate governance necessary to guide an organization towards meeting strategic goals, then members must be - at a minimum - ethical, professional, and diverse. Beyond those requirements lies a universe of qualifications that make up the profile of the ideal board member for your organization. Defining that list, identifying the talent gap your new board member must fill, and identifying candidates that check every box, requires expert guidance.
