Boards are under greater scrutiny than ever. Expectations continue to rise, shareholders and commentators maintain a sharp eye on results, and governance and regulation stay high on the agenda.

In addition, recognition of the importance of gender and broader diversity in the boardroom has brought its own challenges as organisations vie for talent and seek to deploy strategies, which will deliver diverse boards.

We understand these challenges and work with our clients to ensure that they recruit the chairs and non-executive directors they need to build a sustainable future.

We are active participants in the development of the Voluntary Code of Conduct for Executive Search firms, designed to promote gender diversity in the boardroom. We continually map our markets, with particular focus on identifying and mentoring board-ready female talent, and have built access to other diverse talent pools in order to provide our clients with choice and diversity when selecting the most suited appointee.

Led by our Executive Chair Joëlle Warren, our chair, CEO and non-executive director search services provide clients with exceptional range and depth of expertise, as well as meeting very specific competency and quality requirements. Our candidates range from 'high flyers' that are seeking their first non-executive or chair appointment to seasoned individuals.

What they have in common is the ability to bring their experience to bear to enrich strategy, support and challenge the executive, navigate complex operating environments, leverage their networks and act as business ambassadors. As alumni of Warren Partners, we provide our chair and non-executive community with portfolio guidance as well as advice and support to those embarking on their first non-executive director appointment.

As one of the UK's largest independents, we have the scale required to source, quality of service needed to engage, and the experience necessary to attract the best chair and non-executive directors on the market.


Our suite of services ensures that we are best placed in assembling and balancing leadership teams across the UK and internationally. Matching our services to your precise needs and delivering the very best talent.
