Senior Managing Director: Head of Shareholder Activism


A legacy client of SLA, this global consulting firm leads the market in strategic communications, litigation consulting, restructuring, and special situations.


Given the exigency and seniority level of this hire, an exclusive mandate was essential.

In light of the upcoming proxy season, this firm retained SLA to seek a Senior Managing Director as the leader of our client’s Americas shareholder activism and corporate governance practice.

SLA’s Approach:​

Utilizing our proprietary industry research, our team created a specific “market map” to distinguish the strongest senior-level talent in the shareholder activism space. In this highly niche area, six candidates stood out from the rest.

As relationship experts, members of the SLA team were already in touch with all six of these top candidates and facilitated their conversations with our client.


SLA successfully closed the search before quarter-end, with the placed candidate joining the firm’s shareholder activism/corporate governance platform in time for proxy season.
