Board Chair & Directors

Chairs and boards play a critical role in the strategic oversight, culture and purpose of organizations.

Having a cohesive board of directors with a wide range of talent, experience, and diversity is a crucial asset for a chief executive and management team to capitalize on business opportunities and manage risk effectively. This is particularly true at a time of rapid business change, digital disruption, evolving business models, and societal expectations.

Non-executive directors (NEDs) – also known as supervisory or independent outside directors – and chairs are a proven way of helping businesses of all sizes and ownership structures to gain access  valuable talent.

Working in partnership with you, we identify the skills gaps, opportunities, and risks within your business, then help you find the right chair or NED. Through understanding your board and leadership team we find someone who will offer a diversity of thought and perspectives, build an ideal candidate profile, and identify an attractive range of talented candidates from a global pool. The ideal chair or NED should have complementary skills and experience that will add value to your business on board matters including: governance and risk management; strategy, operations, and people; leadership succession; cross-sector and cross-border insights; sustainability, technology, and purpose; and accessing a wider network of useful contacts.

Odgers Berndtson advises the world's largest corporations, including FTSE listed companies, ambitious small and medium-sized businesses, leading private equity firms, entrepreneurs, and family-owned groups. As independent advisors, we help our clients build exceptional boards which drive sustainable business growth.
