Our Board Services team has a combined 75 years of executive search background, including more than a decade of successful Board searches and related advisory projects for a variety of private, private equity and family businesses.
Our industry exposure includes consumer goods, industrial, energy, construction, financial services, healthcare and the oil and gas sectors and our knowledge runs deep into the talent pool of CEOs, career Board Directors, Group Presidents, and other C-Suite executives.
Research has shown that the average number of Board seats of active CEOs is 2.7 so it is critical for clients to be aware of active CEOs who have the time and interest to be on another Board. It is thus our goal to identify and attract the future CEOs, diversity profiles, and other functional office stars that are currently in roles reporting to the CEO. Cultural fit and leadership style are equally vital —often more than professional experience —given the need for a cohesive Board.
We conduct early-stage candidate referencing and face-to-face candidate interviews and assessments significantly increasing the success of Board placement. We limit the number of active assignment commitments to ensure the highest degree of quality client service. We also limit client company blocks and minimize candidate off-limits significantly to expand our available talent pool and increase success.
For Board projects, KI charges reasonable and competitive flat fees that are partially based upon size and ownership structure.
