The world cannot afford to descend again into the hubris of a decade ago which allowed apathy to take hold in some Boardrooms. HW helps its clients recruit fresh talent to their Boards to give them a competitive advantage in highly volatile global markets.

HW has a track record of working with a range of companies from FTSE 100 to PE backed organisations to provide Chair / NED candidates who can offer perspective and challenge. Boardroom teams have to juggle a complex set of variables to succeed. This demands diversity in the true sense of the word, since this helps to provide a wide-ranging framework of knowledge and differing skills to add value.

At the briefing process, HW will take time to understand the complexities of your business and its strategic objectives. We will also provide robust challenge to ensure that the brief doesn’t become an impossible wish list that can’t be fulfilled!  

Being able to offer a longlist that engenders an interesting debate before delivering a shortlist that matches the brief are key requirements in any search. It is the same with Chair/NED roles, but getting that first appointment is often a Catch 22. HW will work with your Nominations Committee to ensure that both new and experienced candidates are considered in the search process.
