Board Advisors

Boards are recognising the importance (and opportunity) of having a diverse board of non-executive directors. They are looking for individuals who do not just ‘sit’ on boards, but actively contribute to, challenge and enhance the governance, sustainability and strategy of the organisation and executive team.

In the past, a flip through the Rolodex and a call to one’s friends might have been sufficient to source non-exec board members. But, in this era of scrutiny, shareholder expectations, and the recognition that diverse boards can substantially enhance outcomes, different recruitment strategies are required.

Jack Hammer offers a blend of executive search and networking, providing a vettedlonglist of potential candidates for review by the nomination committee. From ‘high flyers’ who are ready for their first non-executive or chair appointment to seasoned individuals, the Jack Hammer executive recruitment team assesses capability, capacity and conflicts of interest.

The ultimate goal is to identify and appoint non-executive leaders with the ability to enrich strategy, support and challenge the executive leadership team, leverage their networks and act as ambassadors for the organisation.

"Rebel Girls owes much of its success to Debbie - She is an incredible asset for me and for the company, and I can’t imagine functioning without her. She is very smart, very strategic, and very experienced with execs and startups."

Jes Wolfe,
CEO: Rebel Girls

"Debbie has changed the game for us in terms of a recruiting partner. I haven't really seen anything close to Jack Hammer’s ability to dial-in actual business needs and deliver talent. More importantly, Debbie is an awesome person/founder/leader whose trust and advice are in rare company."

"The Jack Hammer Fractional Leaders team is fantastic. They do their homework and made the time to really get to know me – which meant that my recent appointment has been an excellent match. It’s unusual to find this level of professional ‘high touch’ engagement in the fractional world – but they manage to do this really well."

Brian Mahoney,
Fractional Growth Leader (USA)
