Board Director and Chair Search


      Board leadership decides the overall strategy and trajectory of your business. Weak leadership in these important positions leads to inefficient management, poor recruitment, and at worse, business failure. For lasting business success, you need to recruit and develop strong board leadership within your company. Companies often struggle with succession planning for their leadership board, though. Board members are too busy handling business needs to search for promising candidates to fill open positions. This is where Cowen Partners board recruitment and succession planning services come into play.

      Board Executive Search Firm

      Cowen Partners has extensive experience helping businesses build strong board leadership.  From board recruitment and CEO succession planning to identifying director effectiveness, we can help you with any of your executive board search needs. When working with clients, we create a customized experience to find the best board candidates based on a company’s needs. We carefully identify skill sets and backgrounds that would benefit your team as well as determine which candidates align with company values and goals. Our accomplished team also has experience with a wide variety of industries from consumer goods and financial services to healthcare and many others.


      No matter what industry you work in, it’s imperative to have a seamless transition when one board member leaves and a new one comes in. A vacant board seat only results in business setbacks and makes it more difficult for the incoming board member to adjust to the role. Stay on top of the recruitment process by hiring an experienced national search firm to fulfill your board recruitment needs. Below are some of the services we offer as well as an explanation of how each one of these services will benefit your company now and in the future.
