    InterSearch Global Board Survey 2018: How Boards Take Charge of the Future.

In today’s global business environment, companies are seeking growth opportunities in emerging markets, corporate governance issues have resulted in more regulations, shareholder activism is on the rise, and enterprise risk management has never been more important. Amid these challenges and risks, there is an increased focus on the responsibilities – and liability – of Board Directors.
Based on the range of skills and experiences required, identifying the right mix of Directors for your company, or assessing the effectiveness of your current board, can seem like a complex and overwhelming challenge.
Building upon the strength of our global network of search partners, our expertise with cross-border searches, and our access to a global talent bank of influential executives, the InterSearch Board Practice provides clients with such top-level services as:
  • Board search (Non-Executive Director and Chairman search)
  • Board effectiveness advisory
  • Board evaluations
  • Corporate governance advisory services (1 tier, 2 tier, NGOs, etc.)
We serve as trusted partners to clients both public and private of all sizes across a wide range of industries.
