Board Governance – the next level
At the heart of every successful business sits an effective Board of Directors that guides the enterprise on strategy, emergent risks, talent & succession planning, and stakeholder interests. Good corporate governance thus lays the foundation for sustained growth and profitability, and is a crucial element of success. In times of economic challenges especially, the Board of Directors acts as a lighthouse, safely navigating enterprises through stormy waters.
Everything a Board needs, in one place
At Hunt Partners, we offer an array of services that includes the appointment of Chairpersons & Independent Directors, Advisory Board composition, Compensation Advisory, Director Training & Certification, and Board Evaluation & Effectiveness services. We lean on our panel of experts, current and former Board members of reputed Indian and global MNCs, who from their decades of personal experience, know what makes an effective board. Among other research papers, we coauthor India’s premier biennial publication on corporate governance, the “India Board Report”, in partnership with PWC and AZB & Partners.
Hunt Partners along with its JV partners Board Evaluation Ltd., UK helps the organizations establish the best processes & practices for effective functioning of the Board.
Over the last decade and more, Hunt Partners has actively built and managed a list of high-profile leaders, ranging from seasoned Directors, to those seeking their first Non-executive/Independent Board position. We help businesses identify specific needs and appoint committed, competent leaders who can leverage their knowledge, wisdom and professional networks, while acting as true ambassadors of the organization.
Board Certification & Training
The ‘Directors’ Club’ – a first-of-its-kind capacity-building initiative in India – was designed and launched in 2013, and is delivered in partnership with Board Evaluations Ltd., UK and Global Governance Services, UK. The objective? To train existing and aspiring directors to effectively uphold the Director’s mantle. Director’s Club synthesizes functional knowledge with practical Board experience shared by faculty members from across the globe, subject matter experts, academicians and senior Directors with deep understanding of Board dynamics. This accredited Board certification program aims to boost the caliber of Directors by equipping them with the tools and models needed for superior Board conduct and performance.
In partnership with PWC and AZB & Partners, we conduct a biennial study, the results of which are compiled and published in the highly sought-after ‘India Board Report’. This study is based entirely on primary research and personal interviews with Independent Directors, Company Secretaries, and Business Leaders. Today, India Board Report is the most referenced report in India, for matters related to Corporate Governance, and Independent Directors and Boards.
Apart from this, we also periodically author and publish various articles on Board Advisory and Corporate Governance, including the “Board Effectiveness Report”.

Our Board Evaluation & Effectiveness assessment services, developed in partnership with Board Evaluation Ltd. (UK), and in accordance with SEBI and MCA guidelines, help organizations ensure an effective and optimum Board performance.
Over the last 5 years and more, we have worked as close, trusted partners & advisors for our clients, including Indian, MNC’s and PSU organizations, to evaluate Boards, Directors, Committees and Chairpersons. We have helped each Board develop best practices and winning strategies, design and implement impactful Board processes, all of which have delivered superior levels of Board effectiveness.
