BOARD SEARCH AND ADVISORY

Johnson Partners has appointed over 500 leading Chairs and Non-Executive Directors, making us one of the pre-eminent Board Search and Board Advisory practices in the Asia-Pacific region. Acquiring Boardroom Partners in 2020 has bolstered our Board Search and Board Advisory services. Founded by Jane Bridge in 1999, Boardroom Partners became the leading firm providing advice on the performance, structure and composition of boards. This combination enables us to soundly assist Boards to address their toughest strategic and operational challenges with a sound understanding of their culture and goals, through to identifying long-term succession needs including chair rotations and successful leadership replacements.

Boards in Australia now face unprecedented challenges. Today’s fast-paced, rigorous and intensely competitive and regulated business environment places extraordinary demands on the role of Directors. They must now navigate new challenges and opportunities such as pandemics, digital disruption, cyber security, waves of innovation and the heightened speed of organisational and market transformation. More than ever, board members are required to focus on emerging behavioural and relationship issues to ensure their optimal performance.

Claude and the Johnson Partners team worked with PAG Asia Capital and the Board of Craveable brands on the appointment of our current CEO. The process was rigorous and the level of communication was far beyond our expectations. The appointee has quickly made a positive impact and driven material change across the team. The breadth and quality of the process, and the candidates Claude and the team were able to rapidly bring to the table were outstanding.”

BOARD ADVISORY

WE MAKE IT OUR BUSINESS TO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT OUR CLIENTS

  • Corporate Governance

    We are able to assist with a range of issues relating to the composition, operation and improvement of board practice and have developed substantial expertise and resource materials over our 20+ years working with Boards under both the Johnson Partners and Boardroom Partners brands.

  • Board Structure & Composition

    Reviewing the present or possible structures of boards for companies, advising on the composition of the board and undertaking skills audits of boards to assist with succession planning.

  • Board Review & Performance

    In acknowledgment of the differences between operating environments for boards, we have developed a flexible framework that allows tailoring to organisational needs while retaining core data (Benchmarks) and results to make meaningful comparisons.

    Our framework seeks to answer four key questions for every review we conduct:

    • What are the key functions and responsibilities of this board?

    • Who is on this board and why?

    • How well does this board go about its business?

    • When does this board make a difference?

    Our approach can accommodate a review of board members only or one that involves senior management, shareholders and customers/suppliers. Review results are presented back to the board with recommendations for action. For some of our clients this has meant the beginning of an ongoing process of board development, for others it has meant a confirmation of the existing approach to board operations.

  • Individual Director Contributions

    Increasingly, boards are interested in individual contributions to overall board performance, and we have built a model to complete these reviews in absolute confidence and in a way that integrates fully with our ‘whole of board’ model. Again, we use a framework and tailor the detail of the approach to the particular situation.

    We are also able to provide guidance and advice on remuneration practice and levels of remuneration, and identification of mentoring for Non-Executives and Senior Executives.
