Our client was a publicly held medical device company.
The board retained Travis & Company to recruit a new director to replace a long time board member who was retiring.
The board wished to recruit a CEO or former CEO who had experience in a closely related market.
Travis & Company met with the Chairman & CEO and spoke with other members of the Nominating Committee. We developed a solid understanding of the company’s business, culture, the personalities on the board, and the details of what they wanted.
We conducted a national search and presented a strong set of finalists. The winning candidate had retired after running a large medical device company and had extensive board experience.
