Our board of directors recruiters have extensive corporate governance experience and take a personalized approach to every tech board search. We work closely with you to identify and support your vision, style and long-term mission for your company.
We offer a full range of executive board search resources, an expansive network of qualified board talent, and extensive data capabilities to support you through each step of our data-driven Vell process. As one of the leading technology board search firms in North America, we have over 20 years of experience helping our clients enhance and transform their leadership teams.
We are experts in:
Developing a forward-looking action plan for board composition. We provide an objective analysis of skill sets and help develop the ideal blend of competencies, talents, perspectives, and experiences that best serves a board’s strategic goals. This includes regulatory requirements and diversity for technology boards. The resulting skills matrix highlights the roadmap ahead for your corporate board recruiting.
Creating a talent map report. In partnership with the board, we identify a list of board prospects who fit your strict criteria.
Recruiting top-tier talent to help achieve your most critical goals.
Ensuring that every candidate is an excellent culture fit and brings maximum value to your board of directors. The candidate’s specific skills and experiences are aligned with the most significant challenges, highest risks and toughest strategic decisions the company will face in the upcoming years.
We provide board recruitment services to both public and private companies, delivering broad industry expertise and specializing in technology.
Growth companies interview a broader, but tightly controlled, list of candidates. Larger public companies have a more sequential process that approaches one candidate at a time. Regardless of the size of the shortlist or method, the number of candidates approached needs to be very controlled.
Follow-up: Although the recruiting process is complete when an offer is accepted, we stay in touch with the client and the placement to provide assistance, if necessary, for approximately 12 months.
