"As chairman of the board at Vontier, I found Equilar BoardEdge to be an invaluable tool for identifying and recruiting new board members as we prepared to take the company public. The emphasis on diversity and identifying top candidates is a critical element in the board succession process. The BoardEdge technology which enables tailored search capabilities allowed me to easily discover qualified candidates and understand their connection points with our Vontier network. This is key. BoardEdge unlocks connections and relationships you may not have explored otherwise to ensure a robust and comprehensive search. I highly recommend BoardEdge to companies and boards that are looking to take more control of their search processes to find the best talent for their boards."
"In our most recent board search, we were clear on our effort to add a highly qualified director to the board. BoardEdge not only significantly expanded our candidate pool but also identified network relationships that opened doors to initiate conversations. We recruited a top-notch diverse director who has been a valuable contributor to the board from day one. Utilizing the BoardEdge platform quickly became an essential part of our director recruitment processes."
"When my sales team was looking at particular companies as new prospects, I immediately thought, ‘I’m going to see who we know over there.’ I ran my directors’ connections through BoardEdge to see if any of them are connected to any of those public companies. We could tap those connections. When you’re looking at a brand-new prospect, how do you get over that wall and make that connection? If you can make that sales call at the board level, that immediately gets sent up to management and you will likely get a call back. The prospect is now in play."
"Equilar’s research team has been instrumental to providing impeccable analysis for critical transaction discussions and executive compensation-related decisions. The team of industry experts is highly capable with a broad understanding of M&A implications on compensation matters. The depth and breadth of expertise in severance/change in control, transaction bonuses and other special awards, to name a few, continue to be an incredibly valuable asset to our team."
