Board composition (whether Advisory or Statutory Boards), has never been more critical. The global economic scene and the ever increasing importance of Governance, places continually greater focus on the role and effectiveness of Boards and particularly, the independence of Non-Executive Directors. Increasing scrutiny of Boards by regulators, shareholders, stakeholders and the general public, adds additional complexity. Ensuring the right mix of skills, experience and competencies of your Board, is therefore of paramount importance.




MDN Consulting has significant expertise and many years’ experience in the recruitment of Board Directors/ Chairs (including Independent/Non-Executive Directors). This experience ranges across government, private sector, not-for-profit, charitable, start-ups and union-related organisations. MDN is uniquely positioned to assist you and your organisation in the appropriate search and selection methods and techniques to enable you to identify the best and most skilled Directors to add value to your Board. Our contact network and Director Register is extensive and we are able to source excellent professionals in this arena.


Our Managing Director, Mark Nicol is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants and apart from his 28 year recruitment experience and extensive networks, he and his team understand the technical, legal and governance issues surrounding the appropriate selection of Board members.


A number of our consultants are active, qualified members of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Board and Advisory Board Search and Selection

MDN Consulting understands that Board composition is one of the most important determinants of board effectiveness – so selecting the right board members is crucial to successful board functioning, good governance and long term sustainability of your organisation.


MDN Consulting’s Board Recruitment consultants are experienced in the identification and selection of all categories of Board members including Executive, Non-Executive, and Advisory.


When selecting board members we take into consideration the key requirements and issues facing board members in today’s corporate climate such as:

  • The core business skills, knowledge and personal qualities required by contemporary Boards and their respective members.

  • Sensitivities associated with remuneration issues.

  • Networks and contacts that certain Board members need to have.

  • The evolving complexity of Board agendas with their mixture of traditional and emerging considerations including:

  • Fiduciary and legal obligations as well as financial performance

  • Risk Management

  • Corporate and social responsibility in community, environmental and global health areas

  • Workplace Relations (IR and HR)

  • Workplace Health and Safety

  • Ethics and corporate reputation

  • Strategic focus

  • The need to select Directors using independent, thorough and comprehensive interview and selection processes including detailed and documented reference and background checks. The days of simply appointing “your mates” without independent and due process, have long gone!


Our experienced team of Board Recruitment Consultants have a proven track record in successfully filling board positions by using the resources from our extensive network along with our comprehensive search and selection methods.
