We begin the Reverse Search Program with a strategy discussion, in which we determine where your board governance skills would be best directed, your industry and geographical preferences and review your résumé and/or other written documents. Once we decide on a direction for your board search, we design the most compelling and effective presentation possible. Then we generate a list, defined by your governance skill, industry and geographical preferences, of appropriate target companies. Résumé, cover note and target list preparation and launch takes approximately 30 business days and is sent to you for your approval.
Once you have approved the résumé, cover note and target list, our research staff calls each target company and ascertains the decision maker’s contact information. We provide the names of these contacts, along with their titles, work addresses and phone numbers. If you do not meet your board appointment objective within the first 100 targets/contacts, we will continue to generate more targets/contacts for you until you do so, providing that you continue to participate in the program. Although 85% of our clients meet their board appointment objective within the first 100 targets, we guarantee to provide this continued service, to all our clients, at no additional expense.
In addition to providing a revised résumé, cover note and target/contact list, we provide instructions on interviewing strategies and follow-up communication with decision makers. Mailings to prospective directors are hand addressed to ensure that the board representatives receive a compelling presentation that looks personal and does not appear to have been sent from a search firm, outplacement firm and/or résumé mailing service. You will not have to do any cold calling. We make all information gathering and follow-up calls on your behalf. The only calls, that you will be involved with, are phone interviews.
Any specific information that you convey to us will remain in the strictest of confidence.
