Board Search & Advisory

In a competitive market, regional and international institutions are increasingly aware of the considerable influence of a proactive board.

In the Middle East where relationships are vitally important, Madison Pearl has built up an enviable network of executive management contacts. For our clients who are looking to gain competitor advantage and play on an increasingly global stage, there is an acknowledgment that they need to engage progressive board members who are able to contribute to increasing shareholder value whilst ensuring financial transparency. Other considerations are improved corporate governance through the provision of demonstrable expertise in functional and/or sector-specific disciplines.

Madison Pearl’s Board Practice team has supported a number of emerging market entities on board appointments and continue work on a number of exclusive opportunities. The focus is to diagnose, benchmark and assess a board’s composition and contribution. A truly effective board of directors is concerned to move ‘beyond compliance’, focusing on behavioural and relationship issues that shape effective board dynamics and drive board and organizational performance.

Our process is highly consultative, and at all times we ensure that the most suitable talent landscape has been assessed through our predefined client criteria; this helps ensure a smooth process, keeping executives engaged, clients informed and stakeholders empowered.

"Driven, determined and passionate"

In addition to the traditional cycle of board reviews, clients seek our counsel during periods of significant transition; be that a new chairman or a strategic shift, when they need confidence that the board has the right skills, competencies, relationship and leadership behaviours to guide the business to the next stage of growth.

If your organization is seeking an appraisal of your current board-level structure; is looking to establish, restructure, supplement or develop succession plans for a board or sub-panel; or if you are a current CEO or C-level executive open to considering new board appointments, please do not hesitate to contact us to request additional information and arrange an exploratory discussion.
