Board Search and Advisory Practice
The construction of a well-composed and agile board of directors able to effectively discharge their responsibilities for strategy, oversight and risk, requires planning and diligence in the appointment of non-executive directors.
Liftstream supports the Chair of the board or nominations committee to evaluate the experience required to support the strategic needs of the company and to strengthen the board overall. We implement a structured and comprehensive search process designed to provide clients with a qualified and diverse selection of directors to fulfil the board position.
At an industry-wide level, our research and leadership to increase diversity and inclusion in the boardrooms of life science companies across Europe and the U.S, positions Liftstream as the premier choice for purposely addressing the board diversity. We contractually agree to diversity commitments on both gender and race, and we are striving to reach ambitious diversity targets with our board appointments.
Successful director appointments require ongoing support through the onboarding and integration cycle, and we contribute significantly to this process. Our goal is to appoint impactful directors who are engaged and effective in their service to the board during their tenure.
Liftstream offers expertise and insight that supports the evolution of a board of directors, providing opportunities to strengthen corporate governance and make the directors more effective. Our sustained immersion in corporate governance, including understanding the characteristics and behaviours of high-performing boards, means Liftstream provides distinct services for evaluating and evolving boards and enabling a development process to improve them over time.
