The benefits of Non-Executive Director recruitment

  • Recruiting an NED means you can bring an experienced board member into your team who combines strategic vision with specialist knowledge of your sector or business challenge.
  • Non-Executive Directors come with no agenda other than helping you to grow the business. They’re able to ask challenging questions that will keep the strategy in line with your objectives.
  • NEDs have a large network of contacts, providing you with potential leads, reliable suppliers and trusted partners.
  • Having the right Non-Executive Director involved brings credibility that can make a significant difference when it comes to attracting new funding. A respected NED on your team may be a prerequisite for securing private equity investment.
  • Non-Executive Directors will transfer their skills and knowledge to less experienced leadership teams, making them an excellent choice for business start ups.
  • NEDs can act as a useful, impartial and confidential sounding board for a CEO or CFO.

The Eton Bridge team successfully completed a CEO search for me. The location, sector and proposition, not to mention the very difficult current market dynamics, made this search more challenging. Yet the team remained resolute, determined and professional resulting in a very successful appointment.
