CEOs & Boards

Finding truly great CEOs and Board members requires a deep understanding of the sector you are hiring into. Through years of experience in supporting our clients with these complex roles, we have built a comprehensive understanding of the demands these leaders face. Working collaboratively across our core sectors teams, we’ve established a forensic approach to identify truly outstanding leaders.

While elements of the CEO role may vary from one business to another, their responsibilities are characteristically consistent, with specific strengths marking out an individual for future success as a CEO – leadership, courage and innovation. We know how to find people with these qualities, whether for public companies or private equity-backed businesses.

Our clients depend on us to move fast and confidentially. The individuals we introduce to our clients regularly change not only the future direction of their business, but sometimes also of the industries those businesses operate in. Working right at the apex of the skills pyramid, we work creatively to identify the right individual who can make a lasting difference – and we encourage our clients to think outside their comfort zones too, removing barriers to finding the best candidate.

Where our clients agree, in order to minimise risk on both sides, we bring a scientific lens by conducting rigorous psychometric assessments of in-scope CEOs. This is particularly relevant in challenging business environments.

Alongside our experience in board-level executive appointments, we bring lateral thinking to identify talent for non-executive directorships.

Our clients depend on us to find the right individual, with the right skills and cultural fit. Working collaboratively, with no geographical or sector boundaries, we can access a truly international, cross-industry network.

We don’t just rotate talent from board to board – our clients value our ability to challenge the status quo and bring in creative thinking to find NEDs who can truly add value.
