Chair and members of Supervisory Board

With its advisory role, the chair of the Supervisory Board and its members play an important role in an organisation’s governance. As the first point of contact for shareholders, the Supervisory Board must ensure that it acts in the interest of the shareholders. With monitoring the board performance and strategy and succession planning as its tasks.


The Supervisory Board oversees the Executive Board and gives advice. The roles of a supervisory director are clear, but do not think that their hands are tied. A role-based supervisor in particular can make a difference. In the past, a supervisory director would mainly be in contact with the statutory board. That is no longer the case. A chair of the Supervisory Board now mainly advises and oversees the Executive Board and is, as such, intensively involved in the company. We are keen to help find the ideal members or chair for the Supervisory Board. 

An inspiring, connecting and directional Supervisory Board

Inspiring leadership, connecting qualities and a clear vision. These are the main characteristics that every chair of the Supervisory Board of any organisation must possess. Professional and passionate people with knowledge, skills and true commitment. We are convinced that real leadership determines the difference between success and failure. As an executive search firm, we are keen to make an important contribution to finding the perfect person for the position.
