Board and Executive search for the owner/founder

Rowan started as an Executive Search firm, which solely appointed senior leadership teams.

We know that it’s people that power growth, so where better to start than at board level? Appointing an agile, high-quality, forward-thinking executive board and senior management team isn’t just 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 executive 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 and senior management teams.

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 the existing senior 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.

Rowan – it’s all about the people.

PE-backed Board and Executive Search

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

Traditionally an Executive Search firm, our best-in-class search process is augmented by our proprietary ‘Leadership Dynamics’ product suite. This 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 assessment methodology and PACE behavioural profiling tool to ensure the business leader will complement the existing senior leadership team and executive board, 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.
