REVERSE BOARD PLACEMENT

EXECUTIVE PLACEMENT ON THE BOARDS OF OTHER COMPANIES

Reverse board placement – where executives are placed on the boards of other companies – has gained widespread acceptance in recent years. Looking outside to recruit corporate board members can bring new insights, different leadership styles and unique perspectives on critical decision-making and corporate governance. This can ultimately lead to a more well-rounded, diverse and effective boardroom.

While board service can be very demanding, serving on another company’s board can offer candidates with a number of invaluable professional development tools:

  • An inside look at a different company’s business model, operations and challenges,
  • Improved communication and diplomatic skillsets,
  •  Invaluable exposure and unique learning opportunities in disciplines outside of their current role,
  • Public or private governance experience,
  • Positive exposure and opportunities to network with influential people and market leaders.

Calibre One’s reverse board placement service places well-qualified and fully-vetted candidates on outside corporate boards while they continue in their executive management roles. Our comprehensive approach matches executives with the most suitable boardroom opportunities which includes:

DEVELOPMENT OF THE EXECUTIVE’S “BOARD READY” PROFILE
