Foundations for the future
There is an exciting and challenging time ahead for the nation’s leading companies in the built environment sector. Often operating at the intersection of the public and private sectors, and in the context of ever shifting regulatory, societal and funding pressures, sector leaders are expected to balance operational excellence, cost effectiveness, safety and sustainability with the need to invest in employees, embed diversity and engage meaningfully with a wide stakeholder base.

Saxton Bampfylde has a deep and proud history of appointing game-changing executive leaders, non-executive directors and advisors to built environment businesses at critical inflection points in their history. We know how to identify, attract and measure top talent from diverse backgrounds across a wide variety of functions and disciplines. And much like our clients, we operate at the interface of the different sectors, and have strategic skills in attracting private sector leaders to the public sector – and vice versa.
Bringing forward passionate and diverse Board Leaders
Senior board appointments require a highly targeted, personalised search to identify appropriately qualified senior leaders, and it is essential that each of them is then approached by an articulate and well-informed advisor. Through our dedicated board practice, we appoint over 250 chair and non-executive roles every year: our networks give us extensive reach across sectors, and deep insights into the challenges – and opportunities – faced by boards today.
Developing high-performing boards
Saxton Bampfylde has the expertise and experience to provide chairs with the comprehensive insight they need to run an effective board, having led governance reviews at both executive and non-executive level. Our review process is designed to be relatively light-touch, allowing boards to comply fully with governance recommended practice and providing data and practical recommendations that can be used to improve board/team effectiveness, maximise strengths, and tackle weaknesses. Our view is structured around a tried and tested model, but can be adapted to specific organisational needs.
