Board Search ++ Advisory

Why We Are Different

Hattonneale is a specialist Board Search and Board Advisory firm. We are trusted advisers to our clients helping them find experienced Directors to guide organisations in an ever changing and competitive business environment.

Understanding Your Challenges

For businesses to thrive in todays competitive world they require Directors who are equipped with the skills and experience to help lead and govern in the face of contemporary business challenges.

Hattonneale has a breadth of experience in the appointment of Non-Executive Directors across a broad range of sectors and the commitment required to understand your business and go the extra mile to find the very best Board Directors for your organisation.

Growth Orientation

After 12 years in business we like to think of ourselves as a grown up, start up. The spirit of entrepreneurialism still powers our firm. As a result we partner particularly well with ‘growth mindset’ companies and those who are challenging the status quo in their industry.

Outcome Focused

We genuinely care about the quality of outcomes we produce for clients and candidates. Our founders are deeply engaged in every Board Search and our professional pride and reputation fuel our performance on every search we are entrusted with.


We have the ability to tailor our approach to make most sense for the specific needs of each client. This pragmatic approach is reflected in our time to placement which is well below the industry average.


Diversity is in our DNA. Having been founded by two female Chief Executive Officers we are proud to be thought leaders and mentors on female leadership issues in Australia. We believe in diversity in all of its forms and network widely so that we can bring a diverse range of candidates to meet our clients’ requirements.

Industry Sector Experience

Hattonneale consciously works with fewer clients within each industry sector. This ensures we get to know our clients exceptionally well and are equipped to represent their brands in the market. . In each sector we work with businesses that value a collaborative approach. Importantly our client service approach enables us to achieve our objective of getting to know our clients well – their business strategy and operating model, organisation culture and values.

Track Record

We have built an impressive reputation for the appointment of Board Directors across a wide range of ASX listed, privately owned and private equity backed growth companies. Most of our work is referred through previous partnerships and we have worked with many of our clients on Board succession over a number of years.

Facilitating Growth

We are experienced in working with businesses in sectors which are undergoing disruption and transformation. We constantly find exceptional Board members who will help our clients successfully navigate these challenges to achieve their business objectives.

Board Diversity

We believe Board diversity is not just a box to be ticked, but is a powerful and valuable differentiator for an organisation.
Hattonneale are passionate about helping clients advance gender diversity on their Boards. We are experts at finding those who will add depth, richness and a fresh perspective. Last year our track record for Board appointments was 51% of all Non-Executive Directors placed by us were female.
