Board of Directors

A Board of Directors is at the heart of any organization. Its members must have the vision to move the company forward, the courage to make the difficult decisions to make that happen, and the understanding of their business and its position in the marketplace. At Diversified Search, we pride ourselves on going the extra mile to identify and recruit America’s best minds to America’s best boards.

Our consultants have extensive experience and strong relationships in their fields, enabling them to uncover the right candidates quickly. But what they offer is so much more. Throughout the search process, our Managing Directors are always working to provide the expertise, insight, and guidance to help challenge internal perspectives and help an organization thrive.

We also offer something completely unique: our Corporate Board of Directors Advisory Group, comprised of five seasoned experts in the arena of the challenges and needs of boards of directors, which works within our Board Practice to explore the complex issues confronting boards today, particularly in the area of diversity. These members are:

GILBERT F. CASELLAS, Non-Executive Chairman of OMNITRU, who serves on the board of directors of Prudential Financial, Inc.

CALVIN DARDEN, SR., Senior Vice President of Operations at UPS (Retired), who serves on the boards of Target Corp., Coca-Cola Enterprises, and Cardinal Health
