Facilitating Appointment of Board-level Leaders
Companies in search of directors at times find it difficult to obtain a satisfactory match. This is especially so with listed companies seeking independent non-executive directors and promising companies looking for enhanced leadership at the board level.
The Hong Kong Institute of Directors facilitates companies with their search by introducing candidates from the Board Appointment Candidates Register, maintained by the Institute. This Board Appointment Service helps companies source qualified and suitable independent non-executive directors to fill strategic positions on their boards.
The Board Appointment Service may be used by any organisation intending to strengthen its board leadership. Through this service, the Institute assists listed companies, in particular, to meet the SEHK requirements.
Venture capital firms and business development funds, which place independent non-executive directors on boards of financed companies in order to help steer their businesses to success, also benefit from this service.
Members of the Institute come from diverse industries and professions and command a wealth of experience in corporate governance. The Hong Kong Institute of Directors is a major source for recruitment of professional directors.
