Board Monitor Europe 2019: Heidrick & Struggles publication

In this annual Board Monitor Europe report, we examine for the third year a range of data on the background and experience of newly appointed independent, non-executive directors, by region and country, compared with past years.

Some of the findings in this year’s report include:

  • Of the 503 independent seats filled on the boards of CAC 40 (France), DAX 30 (Germany), ISEQ (Ireland), AEX 25 (Netherlands), PSI 20 (Portugal), IBEX 35 (Spain), and FTSE 250 (United Kingdom) companies in 2018, 62% went to current or former CEOs and CFOs.
  • Some 352, or 70%, of those seats, were filled by directors with previous board experience.
  • Some 191, or 38%, went to women.
  • Some 61, or 12%, of the 503 seats were filled by appointees with experience in cybersecurity, and 121, or 24%, by appointees with digital or social media experience.
