The appointment of a Non-Executive Director to an established or developing Board requires a considered and thoughtful approach. These days Boards are rarely looking for “just another Director.” More often they seek:

  • Complimentary or alternatively quite diverse skills and experiences;
  • Diversity of professional backgrounds;
  • A good cultural fit; and
  • An alignment with both the industry and company values.

LESTER BLADES do not simply look for “a name”. We apply the same critical thinking, search processes and due diligence that we do to a CEO or Executive Director appointment.

We assist Chairs of Boards to apply rigour to the selection process and ensure appropriate consultation with all existing Board members.
