Board Search

Headlight International believe that recruitments of Non-executive Directors (NED) is a way to increase the dynamics and the quality of the work on the board. Over recent years clearer governance requirements, equality and diversity issues, as well as generally higher expectations have led to an increasingly professionalised process regarding non-executive board member recruitments. We find that the same requirements for an analytical and structured search process as for executive positions have made this specific field an increasing part of the services we offer to our clients.

Based on Headlight International´s executive search methodology, we can help the current board or nominating committee to define a relevant search profile, identify and attract the right people to the current board position. During the board search process we evaluate the individual’s skills and experience but we also place great emphasis on the candidates’ personal and unique potential to further strengthen the board’s composition. Our experience derives from our combined years in the search industry and the assignments we carried out within most ownership structures industry and segments, e.g.:

Listed companies

P/E portfolio companies

Start-up companies

Public organizations

Consumer / retail

Bank / finance / insurance
