Supervisory and Advisory Board positions
Supervisory Boards and Advisory Boards are indispensable for a successful company. They make a substantial contribution to the sustained implementation of corporate objectives and strengthen credibility vis-à-vis the outside world, also in the sense of effective corporate governance. An active Supervisory or Advisory Board constitutes a key contact partner for corporate decisions.
The strategic selection of a Supervisory or Advisory Board can considerably strengthen a company’s performance potential. The members of the Supervisory or Advisory Board are managers – they can and should employ their know-how and their contacts proactively for the company. Knowledge that extends far beyond the local market as well as networks to suitably qualified senior executives are therefore indispensable for finding candidates who will be strategic additions to the Supervisory Board.
