bringing expertise, perspective, and value growth
to leading closely-held companies
Boards supervise the activities of organizations; serving as fiduciaries for shareholders; guiding, approving and resourcing strategic plans; and engaging, compensating and supporting the C-Suite. Every company has a Board, and every public company’s board is well-developed.
But, what about private, closely-held companies? They know they’ll benefit from the perspective, expertise and value-add of a functioning Board but they aren’t inclined to expand their Statutory Board (regulating owner decisions and compensation), and they’d rather not incur the costs of multiple Director fees, D&O insurance, Board counsel, etc.
So, form an Advisory Board, right? Unfortunately, most Advisory Boards aren’t effective. Too casual. Too uncompensated. Too little skin-in-the-game. Often, more window-dressing than value-added directorship.
Enter TheBoardAdvisor™. More effective than an Advisory Board. Much like an expanded Statutory Board with all the upside, little of the downside, and great flexibility. A Board-in-One™ with resources far beyond those of the typical closely-held company.
