Increasingly, entrepreneurs and business leaders are realizing how important it is to have a well-staffed advisory board –
and not just because commercial banks often reward this with an increase in creditworthiness. Has the time come for your company to rethink the structure of its advisory board? A good advisory board offers you many options – a professional sparring partner is just one of them. The advisory board may also have strategic functions. Where do you want your company to be in five years? How will you get there? What weaknesses in your management might be mitigated by your advisory board?
When recruiting advisory board members, we systematically evaluate all these facets to determine the areas of expertise and experience that are relevant for you. For this evaluation, we use the same methodology as we do when recruiting managing directors and executives. Once we’ve determined what your requirements are, the next step is to find the right candidates for your positions. These candidates may currently be active in various management positions and can provide new impetus where necessary.
Our clients are mostly medium-sized family businesses in Westphalia. Why is a specialization in a particular economic region important? If you look closely, almost every economic region has its own rules and distinctive features. Predominantly rural areas, such as East Westphalia-Lippe, are characterized by medium-sized family businesses. This affects the executive search process. If there is a vacancy for a new managing director, the owners often express the desire to recruit candidates from the region. However, if the local market does not offer any suitable candidates for the position to be filled, it is necessary to find and motivate "outside" candidates to apply.
Clients’ requirements are completely different when they need to recruit a new management board in a large city. Local connections, profound market knowledge, and know-how about the best marketing strategies for the economic region are the strengths that clearly distinguish us from other consulting companies.
Executive recruiting – globally referred to as "executive search" – is often beyond the scope of a company’s core competencies.
