The CEO of a $2 billion company retained us to recruit a director for the company’s board – someone with a proven record in the retail industry. We targeted an experienced CEO from a publicly held retailer, who has proven to be one of the company’s most effective directors.
Several years later, the board retained us to recruit another director. This time, they needed an executive to chair the audit committee in what, at the time, was a rigorous, highly regulated post-Sarbanes-Oxley era. Despite the restrictions imposed by the legislation, we successfully recruited a seasoned CFO to guide the company as it sharpened its financial focus.
