Financial Services, Confidential Organization – Board of Directors (4)


BIPOC Executive Search is currently inviting nominations and applications for four board member positions for one of its clients on their inaugural Board of Directors. This opportunity will resonate most with motivated individuals who are committed to improving health outcomes for all and who want to work with a company that has a strong social purpose, is inextricably linked with business, healthcare providers, communities, and individuals across Canada.

During this one-year term, the director will be responsible for oversight of the organization and will be accountable to shareholders—the person will also show demonstrated commitment to the organization’s mission, policies, and values. Ideal candidates will have a passion for work in the financial services sector, as well as current and/or past board experience. Candidates should exhibit strong leadership qualities and be keen to support the health and longevity of the organization.

Board directors will contribute to the governance role of the Board through actively contributing specific expertise, skills, and attributes; they will provide wise counsel, engage in strategic discussions— with a willingness to express dissenting opinions in a constructive manner— as well as interpret and understand financial statements, all the while fostering independent thinking and acting objectively to resolve challenging issues. Overall, a director will need to have the ability to consider and reconcile many different perspectives and viewpoints.
