What Our Clients Say
“Our company requested the IoD's Boardroom Centre to identify a suitable non-executive director to bring a new and fresh dimension to our strategic and operational decisions. The Boardroom Centre shortlisted a very capable list of candidates and we ultimately selected a very experienced non-executive director who has already established herself as a key member of our board and has proven to be a great asset to executive management in offering new perspectives and thinking on a broad range of issues."
Sam McCauley, Executive Chairman, Sam McCauley Chemists Group
“The most difficult part was finally making the decision to bring in a non-executive director. Once that decision was made, the IoD’s Boardroom Centre guided us through the entire process. They got to know us, our business and the type of person and skill-set required. A short list of candidates was presented to us and we were delighted with the calibre of people willing to get involved in the business. Following the interview process a clear preferred choice became apparent. We are delighted with our new board member and we have all had to up our game, no harm in a family business."
Jody Fanagan, Director, Fanagans Funeral Directors
"We used the IoD's Boardroom Centre to identify suitable non-executive director candidates for our board. The Boardroom Centre took the brief and quickly came back with a number of suitable candidates from which we identified a shortlist who met our criteria. Meetings with the potential candidates were also facilitated at the IoD offices and we ended up selecting a very suitable candidate who has since joined our board and is contributing very effectively. Overall we were very happy with the quality and efficiency of the service provided by the IoD's Boardroom Centre as well as the outcome."
Dave Murphy, CEO, PM Group
"When RGA was briefing the IoD’s Boardroom Centre on our requirements for new directors, I highlighted the desire to have outstanding and top calibre experienced technical directors who would bring their knowledge and experience to our board discussions. Just as important was to find directors who had the confidence and ability to work with management to help develop as a team, while still maintaining their independence."
Enda Murphy, Executive Vice- President, RGA International Reinsurance Company Ltd
“Having decided to appoint a non-executive chairman, the IoD’s Boardroom Centre provided a professional and seamless service, taking time to get to know our unique business and providing a list of candidates with the skill-sets required based on our specific business needs. Our chairman came with significant business experience in a variety of different areas. He has been with us for just over twelve months and has made a significant contribution in terms of corporate governance, how we communicate, and our plans going forward. We are very grateful to the IoD for their assistance in what for Simtech, has been one of our best business decisions.”
