Board Search

Diversity of thought, meaningful strategic guidance, and appropriate governance.

We work with private equity firms and their portfolio companies to find highly talented executive directors and chairpersons for their boards.

These individuals must be highly pragmatic in their approach and be able to translate their own experience into fit for purpose strategic guidance and corporate governance.

Range Search Partners has deep industry networks which we rely heavily upon to identify the most qualified candidates for our clients’ Boards.  However, we do not rely upon network alone, rather we apply the same meticulous research process and diligence to our board search process as we use in our executive search process.  This process ensures that we explore a diverse pool of talent and enables us to guarantee a diverse shortlist of candidates for each and every mandate that we execute.

The energy sector is in a state of flux.  Changing environmental policy, investor expectations, and consumer sentiment are just a few of the factors leaders in the energy sector face at the macro level, whilst the digital revolution has created the need for executives to reconsider their talent strategies as the traditional approach becomes gradually obsolete.

In order to thrive in this changing landscape, energy companies must have leaders who are agile, commercially innovative, and who possess the vision to see beyond the turbulence to set a strategic direction regardless.  In short, leaders who lead for the future with the fortitude to stay the course.

Our team has over twenty years’ experience of working with energy companies, large and small, and has delivered over 2000 mandates in this sector across 30 countries around the globe.  In the United States, our team has led over 1200 mandates across 13 US States. Our track record of placing highly capable energy leaders spans all functions, disciplines, and levels of seniority.

Private Equity

Private Equity

Today’s private equity and venture investors within the energy and life sciences sectors certainly have their work cut out for them in today’s complex market conditions where change is the only certainty. 

Increased competition, shifting sociopolitical dynamics, and more stringent stakeholder expectations collide amidst enhanced pressure to deploy dry powder.

In order to achieve their goals and stay ahead of the competitive curve, investors find themselves venturing into sectors that are less familiar to them, making access to proprietary deal flow and ability to effectively reference managements teams via their existing networks additional challenges that must be overcome.

Our team has an extensive track record of working with private equity and venture investors and their portfolio companies which spans over 20 years.  We leverage our sector expertise and finely honed research methodology to provide investors with a range of bespoke solutions. These range from providing access to growth-oriented leaders for their portfolio companies to supporting the deal identification and due diligence process via our market mapping or management team referencing solution.

Life Sciences

Life Sciences

Like many other sectors, the life sciences industry has faced disruptions on several fronts in recent years.  Significant regulatory and social pressures, increased global competition, and the rise of digitalization have all had considerable impacts on the way the industry conducts business.

The ‘traditional’ way of doing things will inhibit innovation and weigh heavily on organizations that are not agile enough to adapt to the need for expedient, empowered decision making. 

To chart a path through the turbulence, organizations will need leaders who have the vision to see ahead of the curve, the ability to build highly capable teams, and the confidence to empower their people to execute. 

Our meticulous research process enables us to reach beyond the obvious, deep into organizational structures to identify leadership potential that has yet to be fully tapped, therefore, priming your organization at middle and senior leadership levels, resulting in an advantage over your competitors.
