Board/Governance

Our job is two-fold: keeping abreast of universal governance and understanding the unique challenges facing each CEO and board of directors. Our Board & CEO Practice Group has conducted board of director and CEO assignments for public and private companies across the breadth of industry sectors and market capital size. This significant domain knowledge and functional expertise is coupled with geographic and cultural affinity in each marketplace to ensure DHR builds the right engagement team and is your partner of choice in each unique assignment. Our Board & CEO Practice Group combines seasoned executive search consultants — who are members of prestigious and influential boards — with industry thought leaders with deep expertise in our clients’ specific business models. The insights and perspectives gained in these roles allow our consultants to serve as valuable resources in the execution of board of director and CEO searches. Leveraging this experience, our consultants have come to recognize that the key elements in a successful board and senior executive team include: cohesion, trust, respect, diversity of opinion and capability, and chemistry.
