When an organisation embarks on a process of recruiting an Executive or Non Executive Board Member they will find that the busy Senior Executive rarely has the time or the inclination to look at job advertisements and is very unlikely to respond to a job advertisement even if he or she did notice them.

The majority of executives identified in an Executive Search are not actively seeking a new position, but are identified through the discreet research process as the most viable candidates for a particular managerial role.

It is Woodburn Mann's ability to conduct in-depth research that differentiates us from our competitors.
