Board Director Services

A Great Board Is...

Simply listening to the traditional stream of presentations from the management team and outside consultants is no longer enough to fulfill board responsibilities. Having the correct people serve as board members and creating a culture that invites different opinions is critical. Competitive companies of today - and tomorrow - need to embrace constructive disagreements, versus just a "rubber stamp" of approval.

Effective boards include trust, candor, open communication, diversity, and individual accountability, and embrace self-evaluation and improvement. Wheless Partners continuously meets with top CEOs, CFOs, and Presidents from leading companies across various industries from coast to coast who understand this challenge from their own experiences.

These exceptional leaders have all taken the next step and completed a board profile with us as they seek opportunities to provide their unique expertise to support the CEO and management team in the quest to fulfill their obligations to their shareholders and stakeholders.
