Board Recruitment & Succession Planning Services


Board Services

When built effectively and run efficiently, corporate Boards are a strategic asset and a source of continuous competitive advantage. A Board with a portfolio of competencies and intellectual capital aligned with your organization’s toughest strategic and operational challenges will deliver the edge to drive continuous shareholder return.


Board Recruitment

With pressure on boards relentless and growing from shareholders, regulators, and the media — expectations are high. Proven top leadership is a powerful strategic asset, and there is no room for error in the selection of directors.

  • Analysis of required board competencies
  • Identify non-conflicting director candidates
  • Establish an appropriate timeline for the search

We work closely with Boards to understand strategy, culture, composition and the skills needed and then partner with our colleagues with deep industry expertise – including diversity, technology, and finance to identify the right candidate.


Board Succession Planning

Few events carry greater risk to shareholder value than a change of leadership. Boards that excel at board succession are prepared to meet future challenges without disruption. Cowen Partner’s approach includes:

  • Analysis of required board competencies
  • Development of director profiles to ensure gaps are filled and competencies are retained
  • Establish an appropriate timeline for board refreshment


Board Effectiveness

Boards that are recognized as being highly effective in their structure and makeup, oversight process, and culture and value have become the standard to which every board aspires. Cowen Partners’ Board Effectiveness Consulting practice uses a forward-looking process that is focused on the assessment and potential improvement of the board to meet that standard. Cowen Partners focuses on the following elements to accelerate the effectiveness of boards:

  • Strategic Alignment
  • Composition and Structure
  • Team Dynamics
  • Director Effectiveness
