Eurosearch & Associés is often called upon to carry out Board-level searches. Some of our partners serve regularly as Non-Executive Directors on boards themselves and add real value to this type of assignment.
We recruit on behalf of family businesses, SMEs and start-ups.
Our thorough understanding of the challenges facing shareholders and businesses is critical for successful Board-level recruitments.
Before starting on any assignment, we take the time necessary with the Chairman to understand the reasons for recruiting a new Board member.
What are the objectives? What sort of skills are they looking for? What type of approach is sought? How can we improve the gender balance? What sort of interaction with operational management is necessary? What are the business priorities? Are we looking for a mediator, a catalyst, a steward or an innovator?
Board members are always recruited in close cooperation with the shareholder. We start with a list of candidates approved by the client, and then we contact each of them in strict confidentiality. The recruitment process is as thorough as for senior executives, and references play an important part in the process.
Eurosearch & Associés’ high profile means that we meet a lot of business leaders who are well respected in their professional fields and are available to serve as Board member.
We have built up strong, trusting relationships with these men and women, who constitute a powerful network which we can leverage to deliver successful assignments on our clients’ behalf.
