Board of Directors Search

Transformational direction for PE-backed companies.

Investors take too long to build out their board of directors post close. The faster and earlier investors fill key experience gaps on their board, the better integrated and more effective the board will be in serving the company’s strategic interests. Yet, finding the board member with the background needed to deliver value requires a rigorous vetting process. Relying on proprietary research methods and extensive experience built from servicing investors across all industries, Apex Leaders sources the most relevant and experienced executives to serve on your board of directors. Through a Board of Directors Search, we introduce investors and management teams to executives who align with the desired Director profile. We understand the nuances of investors’ needs and that of their portfolio companies and leverage that knowledge to zero in on the best industry leaders that will augment your management team’s collective experience.

Apex Leaders conducts a rigorous vetting process which not only highlights an executive’s accomplishments, but digs into –
