Executive board recruitment

Executive Board member – search and recruitment

An alert and competent board plays a decisive role in a company's development and goal attainment. A rapidly changing competitive landscape, changing framework conditions and a challenging geopolitical trading situation have become everyday life for many companies. It also affects what competence the board needs to be able to meet these challenges.

We find that companies are increasingly in demand for board members who:

  • reflects diversity in society
  • has a global mindset and brings in international experience and perspective
  • concerned with sustainable and renewable solutions and recognizes how different business practices can help support the business's bottom line social responsibility
  • good ethical and cultural understanding and ability to understand the company´s culture
  • ability to adapt to different business environments and apply technological innovations 
  • can operate within flexible board models and has the ability to meet demands and expectations of new ways to lead
  • understands risk management and crisis management
  • is genuinely interested in creating results together with others, and that manage to challenge, think new and push the company forward

We have specialized in identifying skilled board members. With the help of our search methodology, network and AI-optimizing systems, we present new candidate profiles in line with requested competence requirements.
