Board & CEO

The Interim Board & CEO Practice works along side the Odgers Interim & Odgers Berndtson teams.  The Board Practice is responsible for many high profile chair and non-executive director appointments as well as executive board roles. Interim director and CEO appointments offer the chance to temporarily introduce experienced talent to manage a particular set of circumstances from the very top of the organisation.

As world-class organisations grapple with the global challenges of the 21st century, it is their leaders that define success. They recognise the need to recruit progressive board members who are able to contribute to increased shareholder value and improved corporate governance, while exhibiting solid expertise in functional areas such as finance, technology, acquisitions, restructuring and international marketing.

Our role is to advise on how a board could be structured, who might best fill the role as an interim director or CEO, and how to attract them. Then we implement our advice, combining flair, rigor and teamwork in our search for people who add real value. Good process ensures that the ground is thoroughly covered; it ensures that candidates are impeccably treated; it keeps the client and other stakeholders fully consulted and properly involved.  An experienced interim director or CEO can enable organisations to explore new strategies, enter new markets. Manage an acquisition or disposal, or take an expert view on a particular area of the business without long-term commitment.

For over 40 years, Odgers Berndtson has worked successfully with Fortune 50 to venture-funded start-up companies, redefining and reshaping the critical function of today's most effective boards across all industry sectors. Our search professionals in 28 countries know the executive landscape, understand the challenges and successfully help to assemble cohesive, effective boards, efficiently and in confidence.
