How Do We Help?

Proactive, Insight-Driven Non-Executive Search.

Finding a Non-Executive Director may, on the face-of-it, seem a straightforward exercise. All too often the search for a non-executive director distils down to contacts of the consultant, firm or hiring director, or a name put forward by the likes of accountants, Private Equity and nominated advisers. NED vacancies also tend to attract a lot of interest despite increased regulations and board scrutiny.

Increasingly however, boards are becoming more strategic and considered when appointing new directors. More and more, our clients are choosing to define specific NED skill sets and backgrounds, in order to add significant value and experience to a board and provide insight as to future challenges and experiences. By extension, this clarity can also present a first or early NED position to a current serving executive.

At Edward Drummond, we combine a powerful network with an exhaustive first principle research process. Ideally starting with the board’s strategy, a skills gap analysis and a focused skills-based specification, we develop an objective profile considered alongside the board’s culture/approach to ensure identification of the best possible fit.

We get to know your company ethos, aims and personality, and define the combination of skills, experience and leadership style you’re looking for. You can then leave it to us to seek out non-executive directors with just the right skills to match your specification. We will find those individuals with the correct configuration of experience, proven strengths and skills that go beyond the facts on their CVs.
