Board of Directors

Placing Talented and Diverse Leaders on Boards

Koya Leads Board Searches for Public, Private, and Nonprofit Clients

Boards with a breadth of perspectives are increasingly recognized as being critical to effective corporate governance. Clients with diverse boards report benefits to their business and strategy, increased innovation, and increased market share. As companies face evermore complex issues, board diversity better positions leadership for success.

Our experience is that many CEOs, Chairs, and Nominating Committees are seeking to diversify their boards. However, despite ongoing efforts and good intentions, their networks are limited. This makes it difficult to identify, evaluate and attract highly qualified women, executives of color, and other diverse candidates that would be a strong fit for their board.

Koya’s Board Practice is designed to help our clients address board diversity by identifying and recruiting directors who bring a variety of experiences, perspectives and backgrounds. Desired diversity often includes women, executives of color, age diversity as well as other categories. Koya’s Board Practice serves public and private companies and nonprofit organizations.
