Our Board Services encompass:

  • Identifying and recruiting independent board members and non-executive Chairs and Directors, including single appointments and entire boards of Directors.
  • Assessing the skills, competencies and characteristics required by a Board in line with its long-term business strategy, including identifying any gaps in expertise.
  • Advising on Board structure and composition, remuneration, succession planning and governance best practice, as well as resolving conflicts and restructuring.
