We Excel at Building Diverse, High-Performing Boards.
Never have the stakeholder demands on boards been greater—from shareholders, employees, customers, regulators, proxy advisors, activist investors and the general public. Additionally, the dynamic nature of today’s capital markets, geopolitical events and technology advancement all point to the need for boards to reassess their current capabilities and focus on governance effectiveness and board refreshment. We are intimately familiar with the qualities new directors must embody to meet current boardroom demands and the expertise needed to enhance future board decisions.
We work collaboratively with board leadership, governance and nominating committees, CEOs, general counsel and senior leadership teams to build successful, enduring enterprises. We are deeply committed to accelerating diversity in executive leadership teams and in the boardroom—over 70% of our placements during the past seven years have been diverse.
Our Board Services team has a proven track record of assisting boards with:
Led by a faculty comprised of high-performing public and private company board leaders, complemented by corporate governance content experts from the University of California, Berkeley Haas Business School, the NextGen Directors program experience covers key corporate director duties and responsibilities, the work of the full board and individual committees, an interactive board case session and governance best practice exchange.
Each program participant is provided an opportunity to develop relationships with existing board leaders and further refine their future board interests. This long-standing relationship has allowed us to introduce boards to the next generation of board members and provide board-ready senior executives access to a variety of corporate governance opportunities.
