Board and Executive search for the owner/founder

Our mantra here at Rowan is, “it’s all about the people”. We know that it’s people that power growth, so where better to start than at the top of an organisation? Appointing an agile, high-quality, forward-thinking Board and executive team isn’t important – it’s mission-critical.

Rowan’s Private Capital team is made up of experts across all major business verticals, and this is how we structure our search and assessment projects.

Our proprietary ‘Leadership Dynamics’ product suite, combined with our best-in-class search and assessment methodology, gives us the broadest and deepest possible reach in the market when appointing SME leaders.

We know what to look for in a great SME leader, and use our proprietary PACE behavioural profiling tool to assess their functional, situational and domain experience, as well as their behavioural tendencies and complementarity with your existing leadership team.

We’re able to use the Leadership Dynamics suite to find and assess future leaders too. When working with the SME on executive-level mandates, we’re always on the lookout for those ambitious, growth-minded candidates that have the potential to be the next board member.

PE-backed Board and Executive Search

Our sector experts focus on finding and assessing growth-focused business leaders that understand the increased rigour, professionalisation and focus on ROI that PE demands.

Our proprietary ‘Leadership Dynamics’ product suite allows us to identify those upper-quartiles business leaders that have the right functional and situational experience for the PE-backed SME, as well as the experience of taking a SME on a comparable growth journey.

We then use our ‘best-in-class’ assessment methodology and PACE behavioural profiling tool to ensure the business leader will complement the existing senior leadership team, and is aligned to the SME’s value creation plan.

Rowan’s PE experience is extensive, and we are well-embedded Private Equity networks nationwide. Trust Rowan when you need to appoint business leaders of PE standard.
