Forster Chase has had a long track record of placing Chairman, NEDs and C-level executives on both regulated and non-regulated boards. We are well versed in balancing cultural and experiential diversity, interpersonal skillset and abilities in order to build an effective independent board.
Our success in Executive Search is the result of a sound understanding of motivational psychology in both client and candidate. As such, we conduct extensive analysis using a questioning mindset and provide the intelligence you need to identify, attract, retain and develop exceptional people.
We understand that execution is key in achieving business goals, therefore when there are specific technical or leadership skills are required below board level we can identify and attract suitable candidates through referrals and technical assessments including our in-house Capability Profiling tools.
We work with a stable of consultants and interim professionals, many who have backgrounds in the Big 4 accountancy or Big 3 consultancy firms. They provide strategic advice and project resource on a number of subjects including: Risk and Regulatory reform particularly with an emphasis on working with the FCA and PRA, Systems implementation, Finance and IT transformation, etc.
As part of succession planning and strategic reviews, we are able to conduct talent mapping exercises using our own in-house research team as well as external verified data sources using cutting edge technology. Thereby giving you the information you need to attract the diversity and skills you require.
Given the importance of leadership, experience and cultural fit to organisational success, we are able to provide assessment tools administered by qualified professionals to help you identify leadership strengths and weaknesses or to assess potential hires.
