Boards are recognising the importance (and opportunity) of having a diverse board of non-executive directors. Individuals who do not just ‘sit’ on boards, but actively contribute to, challenge and enhance the governance, sustainability and strategy of the organisation.
In the past, a flip through the Rolodex and a call to one’s mates might have been sufficient to source non-exec board members. But, in this era of scrutiny, shareholder expectations, and the recognition that diverse boards can substantially enhance outcomes, different recruitment strategies are required.
Jack Hammer offers a blend of search and networking, providing a ‘vetted’ longlist of potential candidates for review by the nomination committee. From ‘high flyers’ who are ready for their first non-executive or chair appointment to seasoned individuals, the Jack Hammer team assesses capability, capacity and conflicts of interest.
The ultimate goal is to identify and appoint non-executive leaders with the ability to enrich strategy, support and challenge the executive, leverage their networks and act as ambassadors for the organisation.
