We Take Things Personally
Our philosophy? Women and minority
executives rarely are found in the established circles from which
directors are typically recruited.
They're discovered through peer-to-peer networks. That's why our founders
aren't just figureheads. We're personally involved, using our
networks to bring you the optimum candidates.
Once engaged by a company, we work with you
to define your specific requirements—what skill sets you’re looking for, what
voids you’re hoping to fill. Then, we access our proprietary
database – created with input from each of our rolodexes, corporate
executives, board members and other high-level referral sources – to
identify potential candidates who fit your needs.
Our founders meet personally with your candidates, evaluating not
only their resumes, but the nuances and intangible characteristics
that are often the difference between an effective board member and
simply a body to fill the chair.
Once a candidate is chosen, we continue
to work with you to ensure a smooth transition. We also provide
a custom mentoring program for
all the new directors we place, to make sure they start making contributions
as quickly as possible, as well as continuing education programs that
help develop our candidates to their full potential.
Our mission is meeting the needs of corporate boards for increased
independence, effectiveness and diversity. And our commitment is so
great that our founders handle the details personally.
