The McLean Partnership was procured to source an Independent Non-Executive Director and Chair of the Audit Committee for a privately owned European stockbroker. The existing board was eager to review a diverse and broad range of interested candidates who had proven experience operating in regulated financial services environments outside of equities broking.
We approached over one hundred relevant executives with a broad range of backgrounds from insurance companies to established accounting and consulting firms. Candidates had an existing and proven portfolio of non-conflicting but complementary Non-Executive appointments.
We delivered a shortlist of six candidates that satisfied our client’s diversity requirements and represented a breadth of skills and industry knowledge. Two candidates were taken forward to final rounds to meet with the Chairman and other members of the Executive Committee. The appointment was completed and announced ten weeks after the search contract sign off.
