Modern successful organisations of any size need independent minds next to their natural leaders to help them uncover the unforeseen as well as keep the maximum possible level of transparency.
Non-Executive Board Directors (also known with the acronyms NED or NXD) represent an efficient way for organisations to achieve several objectives at the same time among which a "comfortable" board atmosphere, the practice of asking hard questions when they are necessary, bringing fresh ideas and different perspectives, balancing potentially biased views of other members whose interest is not always shared with that of the company, and many more.
The choice of a Non-Executive Board member is not as simple as it may seem. Forthalia helps companies in this respect. In some occasions we may interpret directly this role otherwise we help identify the best candidates to fill such delicate positions.
