I was new to the whole process of trying to join a Board of Directors. I really wasn’t sure what I was doing and I wasn’t sure if it was right for me. I can honestly say Boardsi really gives every single person that signs up with them a personal touch. I can’t even count how many people in the company I spoke to or had some sort of email correspondence with. Whether it was Cameron, Alex, Martin, or Summer, everybody replied immediately and professionally. When I was trying to join a board, they probably worked the hardest to make sure the relationship grew and flourished. I am now a board member on the first organization that I interviewed with and met. Boardsi has the uncanny ability to make you feel like they’re only client. I highly recommend them without any reservation! I am Excited to continue working with them!

With Boardsi, the team reached out regarding a company interested in speaking about an independent non-executive board member role on the day that my resume was uploaded to the platform. I’m grateful to Boardsi for facilitating the introduction

Being based out of Toronto I wasn’t sure how working with boardsi while building my Board Advisors would turn out. I took a chance and sure am glad I did! Their team went over our needs and started the search process immediately. Within a few weeks, I had some resumes and a few of them were great. Now after 4 months we finally signed a contract with our 1st Executive and are moving into searching for number two, an Executive that is EU centric. Overall I am very happy with boardsi and the search process. As I continue to build out the our board advisors, we will continue to work with boardsi. I highly recommend for any company to connect with boardsi and am sure they will find you the type of executive you are searching for.

I am the chair of a relatively small organization. We received three referrals from Boardsi, all of whom were extremely well qualified. We were interested in a diversity of ethnicity and skillsets, and boardsi delivered. We have already elected two of them and the third is proceeding through the process. We have been extremely satisfied working with Boardsi.

At first when I was contacted by Boardsi, I thought it sounded too good to be true, but was so intrigued, I took a meeting. I told them I wanted someone with C-suite experience in international brands in restaurant and retail, thinking it would be a tall task. In a couple of weeks I was talking to my absolute dream advisor and was able to bring her on. It has helped my business and helped me form invaluable contacts that otherwise would have been impossible. Could not recommend Boardsi enough!

CASEY GOLDEN
Founder, Chief Experience Officer Luxlock

I found the right executive for my advisory board at boardsi.com. I have been searching for quite some time for high-level executives and was spending way too much time finding the wrong ones. I got in contact with my representative at boardsi, sent him an email with the skill sets I was looking for and within a short period of time I was delivered exactly what I needed. Boardsi has proven to be a very viable source for strategic C level talent. I highly recommend them.

FanWide was seeking sports executives to join our advisory board, but found it hard to navigate this industry. boardsi was a great partner and connected us with multiple executives with experience in the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB. Boardsi has a great network, it is worth a conversation to see how they can help you!

As the Founder of a fast growing start-up, time is a limited resource and trusted advice priceless. Boardsi was recommended to us during our seed raise. boardsi team have been an invaluable counsel and presented us with great calibre advisors to support our operational advisory board. I was thoroughly impressed by the expertise, experience and network of every candidate interviewed. They allowed for a seamless process, went over and beyond to find the right candidates and were an overall joy to work with. I highly recommend Boardsi to any company seeking to expand their Advisory Board or Board of Directors.

What a great Board search experience!! From the first phone call with Scott Forno, I felt a sincere interest in working with me on my Board search. The boardsi team took the time to clearly understand my needs and what I could bring to the table. He worked diligently with true confidence in my abilities and found me an exciting opportunity which I am about to begin. His transparency and candor was most appreciated. I will continue to work with Boardsi as their focus is on my success; and in return Boardsi is a success!! Thank you.

I am impressed with your knowledge of this space and your communication has always been on point. Thank you for supporting my efforts in seeking the right one or two BOD seats of interest. Rest assured, I will certainly recommend your services to my colleagues who wish to pursue similar opportunities.
