– SWITZERLAND, Geneva / USA, FL – Talent4Boards Inc., the global Board news and publishing portal focusing on the Boards of Directors and their members, announced that since its inception in 2013, its platform has posted over 35’000 Board appointments of those talented Corporate Board Directors.
“Our valuable guest members are sitting on the Boards of companies in all sectors within 80 countries. Among these companies are more than 76% of Fortune 500 companies, 64% of Global 500 companies, and 144 are current unicorns.. Most of the world’s most prestigious brands have one or more Corporate Directors in our network,” said Executive Chairman, Olivier Dellacherie.
The actual global positioning covers 54% from the Americas, 38% from Europe, and 8% from the rest of the World including the Middle East and Asia. While publishing encompasses most world stock markets, the platform also highlights emerging and promising start-ups, as well as growth companies and their rising Entrepreneurs, who make outstanding prospective Directors.
Olivier Dellacherie added, “There is an incredible pool of untapped talent as companies struggle in an increasingly global and changing world. The economy is becoming more global, thanks to the explosion of social media, the internet, and the digital economy disrupting most of the traditional businesses. Addressing the challenges by integrating these changes onto the Boards of Directors cannot be delayed anymore. The companies must open their Board to new talent and/or new expertise. With over 12’000 guest Corporate Board members from Boards around the world, our approach is global as are the challenges of these Boards.“
Talent4Boards aims to support and promote the community of Board members worldwide and posts a daily flow of press releases about the last Board appointments on Public/Listed companies as well as VC/PE-backed companies. By doing so, the platform puts the Board members in the spotlight as experts – seasoned, bright, passionate, dedicated, and accountable -, and supports them for that.
“Over the last nine years, a lot has been done about fixing the gender bias or revamping the old-fashioned networking among Board pairs. The move was forced by new Corporate Governance rules, Market pressure, or formal regulations, but sometimes, I am proud to see the Boards of esteemed companies moving out of their comfort zone to welcome tech-savvy or disruptive Board fellows. Companies can do so for a variety of reasons, for example, to correct a gender imbalance or create a generational shift; to bring in an expert on digital, social media, or consumer behavior; or to hire someone with experience in a specific zone or sector. And they can do it on a global scale. And consequently, the search must now also be managed at a global level” continued Mr. Dellacherie.
While much has been done in recent years to increase the number of women on Boards, the under-representation of minorities within Boards still needs to be addressed concretely. The growing share of minorities in overall consumption, particularly in the United States, cannot be ignored any longer, especially with the staggering growth of the “digital economy”. The integration of consumer behavior will be decisive in the next decade.
