Mastering the Board selection process


In my previous posts (Hard truths about getting on a board and Are you ready to join a board) I discussed the executive profiles most likely to attract attention of the nomination committees and a personal checklist to determine whether you are ready to join.

This week, we’ll take an insider look into the board kitchen and the workings of the Nomination Committee (NomCo). The selection process for new board members is not always well understood by outsiders and I thought it would be worth reviewing it here briefly.

There can be a variety of reasons to appoint new directors but the main one is the retirement of an existing director. It is always good to know who you may be replacing and why this person left, if tenure or age is not the main reason.
