December 9, 2019 – Board service can be one of the most rewarding career experiences: It’s the opportunity to see firsthand how another company operates at the highest levels and to work with – and learn from – accomplished, articulate and intelligent people. It’s why many leaders decide to start down the path to the boardroom. It’s also why the number of qualified boardroom candidates outweighs the number of board seats available in a given year.
Global recruiting consortium The Taplow Group recently announced the appointments of its new board members. “With a choice of so many excellent candidates, we were challenged to narrow the field to the following appointees,” Taplow Group said. The new board is elected for years.
The new board members bring a wealth of experience in the following areas: communications and marketing, strategy and innovation, market analysis, business development and corporate governance, among others.
“We have added very well qualified individuals in their specific areas of expertise to create a diverse board that has the skills and experience needed to help lead The Taplow Group into the future.” said Mr. Mark Firth, chairman of firm. He also thanked the previous board, who served the group with an emphasis on developing the groups brand and partnership over the last four years; in particular he thanked “Steve Schrenzel (U.S.), Peter Tanner (Australia) and Timo Toivanen (Finland) who retired from the previous board, for their efforts and input in making the period 2013 to 2017 one of the most successful periods of growth for the group. We look forward to the new board of directors continuing to serve our partners, clients and candidates, whilst continuing to implement innovative new services across the group.”
