Board of Directors Practice

A Board of Directors is at the heart of any organization. Its members must have the vision to move the company forward, the courage to make the difficult decisions required to make that happen, and the understanding of their business and its position in the marketplace. At Diversified Search, we pride ourselves on going the extra mile to identify and recruit America’s best minds to America’s best boards.

Our consultants have extensive experience and strong relationships in their fields, enabling them to uncover the right candidates quickly. But what they offer is so much more. Throughout the search process, our Managing Directors are always working to provide the expertise, insight, and guidance to help challenge internal perspectives and help an organization thrive.

We also offer something completely unique: our Corporate Board of Directors Advisory Council. Composed of nine seasoned experts in the arena encompassing the challenges and needs of boards of directors, the council works within our Board Practice to explore the complex issues confronting boards today, particularly in the area of diversity. These members are:

Mary K. Bush, President of Bush International, LLC, advisory to U.S. corporations and foreign governments on international capital markets, strategic business and economic matters, who serves on the board of directors of Bloom Energy, T. Rowe Price Group, Inc., Marriott International, Inc., Discover Financial Services, Mantech International Corp, and Private Export Funding Corp.

Gilbert F. Casellas, Vice President, Corporate Responsibility and Chief Diversity Officer for Dell, Inc. (Retired) who serves on the board of Prudential Financial, Inc.

Calvin Darden, Sr., Senior Vice President of Operations at UPS (Retired), who serves on the board of Target Corp., Aramark, and Cardinal Health.

A great board member can transform an organization. Our resources are significant; our expertise, formidable; our determination and passion for excellence, limitless.
