The performance of America’s corporate boards, and their directors, continues to be a subject of great interest to the investor community. We all wish to believe the process by which directors are selected is the result of an optimal matching of director skills and board needs. However, this may be an overly optimistic expectation.
Recognizing that America’s most accomplished executives (CEOs and their direct reports) are generally limited to one outside board, we innovated our unique BoardSelect® advisory service in 2006 to allow them to proactively select that singular board. Our client executives save precious time that others spend networking with professional contacts, cultivating awareness with executive search firms, and hoping that the phone will ring with an opportunity.
BoardSelect® capitalizes on our corporate governance knowledge and the extensive network of relationships at the boardroom level that we have established over the years. Our BoardSelect® clients are discreetly considered by the boards identified as particularly well-suited to the executive’s professional objectives, as well as the strategic priorities of his/her company. Our ultimate objective is to enhance the director/board matching process and thereby elevate the quality of corporate governance in America’s boardrooms.
