Boyden Executive Search

The Boyden Difference

Over the past 30 years, Boyden has built a global network and community of highly qualified interim executives. We provide a truly integrated team approach to executive search and interim management, and collaborate and partner with our clients to develop effective, tailored solutions.

In addition to an exceptional talent pool, our capabilities in interim management are unparalleled in the market, due to various factors:

Integrated Offering: Boyden combines the strengths of an interim management firm with one of the world’s top global executive search and leadership consulting firms, often working in concert.

Top-Tier Focus: We specialise exclusively on roles at very senior levels, and work with a hand-selected pool of interim executives whom we know, trust, and consider to be in the top 10% of candidates.

Rigorous Process: Our process, from briefing to shortlist, interview to contract administration, mid-assignment review to project completion, ensures efficiency, professionalism and discretion.

Exceptional Team: We have vast collective experience and knowledge of the interim management industry, and work together seamlessly to lead clients and candidates through our process.

Our Process

We have a robust and highly efficient process for sourcing and placing our interim executives:

  1. Enquiry: A prompt response and assessment of the client’s needs to determine whether an interim executive is the best solution
     
  2. Briefing: A detailed conversation or meeting to fully understand the business and context of the requirement; outline objectives, timelines, budget and required candidate competencies, background and sector knowledge
     
  3. Search: Engage with our network of interim executives to source those with the right level of technical ability, and very importantly, the best cultural fit
     
  4. Shortlist: Present a shortlist of 2-3 candidates, with all pertinent details to an agreed timeline
     
  5. Client Interviews: Client selects candidates to meet and interview
     
  6. Final Selection: Define terms and manage contractual administration

Boyden is committed to ongoing quality management. Throughout the assignment, we stay in regular contact with the interim executive and the client to monitor progress. When the assignment concludes, we meet with both the client and the interim to ensure a smooth transfer of knowledge and review performance.
