Starfish Search launches it’s new dedicated Board Practice

Led by our CEO, Juliet Taylor, our new dedicated Board Practice at Starfish will ensure that the right technical capability and expertise is available to all clients for their non-executive recruitment and board development assignments. Over 35% of appointments we’re commissioned to handle now involve non-executive search. Our new practice will continue to evolve throughout 2024, matching expert consultant skill and experience to the level of complexity, nuance and partnership often required for a successful outcome. Despite challenging market conditions, particularly for pro bono Chair appointments, Starfish continues to hold a placement rate of 98% on over 250 Chair, NED, Trustee, Committee Chair and President appointments. We are proud to have built a compelling track record of projects where our work has facilitated a genuine shift in authentic board diversity, or board capability, reach and culture. Meeting the high expectations our clients necessarily bring to their Board requirements, given the pressures they themselves face, requires clear advice grounded in insight, a pragmatic and tenacious approach, and a team that can be trusted to deliver results. As we approach our fifth anniversary, we remain focused on listening to our markets and responding to what we hear through the active development of our services, and attention to customer care. We are now growing our team of knowledgeable, committed board enthusiasts to rise to new challenges as the world around us all continues to change.
