Board Members

Recruiting members of Boards of Directors has always been a challenge for public companies as well as the portfolio companies of private equity firms. Sarbanes-Oxley, Dodd-Frank, and related legislation has made it more difficult still for public companies. CannyBowen recruits Board Members for large, medium, and small-cap companies. In addition to recruiting individual Directors for our clients, our team has recruited the entire external Board for a Fortune 1000 company.

  • The current Board’s strengths and weaknesses
  • Expertise deficiencies
  • Desired industry and functional knowledge
  • Balance of talents and interests
  • Integrity and cultural fit
  • Diversity

CannyBowen has completed Board assignments for companies in a wide variety of industries including consumer products, industrial goods, and technology.
