Board of Director Recruitment

Representative Public Board Appointees

Let Us Help You Bring Exceptional New Leaders To Your Board

We are the search con­sul­tants of choice in the Sil­i­con Val­ley for adding vital skills and expe­ri­ence to pub­lic com­pa­ny tech boards. Our Part­ners are experts in sup­port­ing boards in their work to under­stand their strate­gic needs and recruit for spe­cif­ic role requirements.

Most boards today look for assis­tance in build­ing a strong ros­ter of exter­nal direc­tors who can work effec­tive­ly as a team and act to pro­vide excep­tion­al cor­po­rate governance.

We work pro­fes­sion­al­ly and quick­ly to iden­ti­fy, assess and recruit board direc­tor tal­ent to your company.

Patricia Parra Hadden Portrait

Working with Lonergan Partners during the board recruitment process was a breath of fresh air. Being a Latina woman, I was concerned that the client firm was just looking to check a box, but Lonergan Partners helped clarify why my skillset and experience were a match, regardless of my gender and ethnicity. Now that I’ve been a board member for over six months, I know that Lonergan Partners did an excellent job matching me to the right board, and I can see that I have a great opportunity to impact the future of the company – something Lonergan Partners was able to identify months before.
