The combination of skills and expertise required in today’s boardrooms is constantly evolving, and every company or organisation will have unique specifications for its most senior executives.
While Hoggett Bowers’ CFO, CTO/CIO and HR practices offer specialist consultancy in these core areas, our Board practice brings true cross-sector and inter-disciplinary perspective to the challenges facing business leaders. In addition to search and recruitment for C-level executives, we understand the particular role NEDs play within successful companies and have decades of expertise in the non-executive space.
Our mission is to ensure that clients are able to draw on the very best combination of experience and capabilities across their entire leadership team. As in every other part of our consultancy, we are highly engaged with the requirements for diversity and inclusion in the boardroom, and work with clients to ensure that their own policies in this area are fully incorporated into each assignment.

Why Hoggett Bowers?
For over 50 years Hoggett Bowers has helped its clients shape and maintain successful boardrooms by working with them to identify and recruit not only executive directors across all main functions, but also non-executive directors appropriate for the roles of chair, audit, remco, etc, to mentor and provide positive challenge to their executive colleagues. In parallel, our Interim practice is regularly charged with board-level assignments for more acute or sensitive briefs.
We work with businesses of all sizes – from FTSE-100 and leading privately held entities to start-ups – to fulfil their board search requirements. We maintain an unrivalled network of experienced executive and non-executive board members, who are or have been either clients or candidates, and we augment this with robust and rigorous search when undertaking board-level assignments. We host regular events for CEOs, CFOs and NEDs across our client base to promote networking and the transfer of ideas among colleagues from different sectors.
