Talent4Boards highlights the most talented or promising Corporate Board members

– 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, the platform has posted over 40’000 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 80% of Fortune 500 companies, 64% of Global 500 companies, and 145 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 current 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 traditional businesses. Addressing the challenges by integrating these changes into 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 and 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 ten years, much has been done to correct gender bias or revamp the old-fashioned networking among Board pairs. The move has been forced by new Corporate Governance rules, Market pressure, or formal regulations, but sometimes, I am pleased to see the Boards of esteemed companies stepping out of their comfort zones to welcome tech-savvy or disruptive Board fellows. Companies may do so for a variety of reasons, such as to bring more diversity within the Board 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, or who is more representative of their customers. And they can do it on a global scale. As a result, the search must now also be managed at a global level” continued Olivier Dellacherie.

While much has been done in recent years to increase the number of women on Boards, there is still a need to concretely address the underrepresented groups on boards. The growing share of specific 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.
