Our mission is to deliver sophisticated and detailed board candidate curation with a focus on corporate and board cultural understanding. Our boutique approach addresses strategic board needs through the unique lens of corporate values with certainty of results. Strategic Board Solutions is not simply an aggregator of profiles; we do not act as a warehouse for personalities and personnel records, but are committed and engaged in the process of delivering results that are highly specialized and uniquely complimentary.
In today’s marketplace, many large firms offering board member searches are more interested in growth, monetization opportunities, and scalability. In the process, themes such as compatibility and corporate cultural awareness often get overlooked. Boards and nomination committees often remain compelled to fill director vacancies based purely on a formulaic approach as a result of needing to mitigate risk, streamline processes, and harvest standardized efficiencies. This leads to highly homogenized results, and common candidates. Best practice requires a more substantive and highly customized approach.
We only provide candidates that have exceptional professional success, industry and peer recognition, and a sterling reputation. Recognizing and acting on these characteristics allows us to take the process of curation to a more elevated and intimate level. As such, director candidates that are a part of Strategic Board are the most respected, engaged, and collaborative individuals in their respective fields. Furthermore, the selection of these individuals is based on how their professional skillsets compliment the constitution of the board in question.
We are not conflicted by mixed messaging on mission statements. As our name implies, we limit our practice to board (public, private, not-for-profit) level placement. Importantly, our board service does not include activist-driven agendas, nor executive search. We are intimate, with our efforts targeted by design. Our client list is intentionally limited.
Diversity is more than simply a catch phrase for the team at Strategic Board. We source the domestic US market in our process. We pride ourselves in placing leaders from every demographic, gender, race, and geography with an eye on corporate cultural intelligence and shared values.
