Securing the most effective combination of skill and cultural diversity through your chair and non-executive directors is essential to maximise the value and contribution of your board, to provide the necessary guidance to effectively navigate the key issues facing all organisations. 

Whether your priorities are focused on digital transformation, regulatory and compliance, brand and reputation, commercial growth or stakeholder management, Leathwaite can present you with an array of highly-experienced, diverse professionals, all of whom have a reputation for high impact and high delivery.

In addition to offering a chair and NED executive search solution, Leathwaite is also able to offer independent board assessments, access to external consultants / advisory services and succession planning reports.

What is unique about Leathwaite’s chair and non-executive directorship practice?

A high proportion of the NED relationships within Leathwaite’s professional network have been developed over twenty years.

Having been founded originally as a financial services executive search firm in 1999, Leathwaite has had the opportunity to develop a substantial network of director and managing director professionals. These relationships have subsequently developed from candidate-led to client-led, as these individuals have grown into highly effective c-suite professionals.

We have now had the pleasure of witnessing an increasing number of them transition into chair and NED roles, both within commercial and non-profit environments, as they seek to apply their knowledge and skills in the next stage of their careers.

This is why we are able to say with certainty that the candidates who we present to you have been personally vetted, extensively reference-checked and are of the highest possible calibre.

Actively fostering a chair and non-exec community:

At Leathwaite, we practice what we preach; Vicky Griffiths, who leads our chair and NED practice, is a member of both the Main Committee and the Finance Committee of the MCC at Lords Cricket Ground.

Vicky also hosts a regular series of roundtable breakfasts for the NED community, each of which addresses different issues that boards are facing.

CEOs that make HUMAN CAPITAL their top priority, and continuously strive to engender employee loyalty, have the highest probability of realizing outsize returns.
