Director Appointments Testimonials

Habitat for Humanity NZ

"Habitat for Humanity NZ Ltd recently had three Independent Director vacancies that we had attempted to recruit into ourselves with little success. What we realised after several attempts was that we did not have the internal resource to complete this very important exercise ourselves.

Kevin McCaffrey and the Effective Governance Team were already completing some Business Review work for us (so knew the organisation and our needs), we knew that he/they also undertook these types of assignments – so we engaged Kevin to assist us with this recruitment. We provided a brief, and Kevin “went to work”. 

We had a relatively short turnaround requirement, and this was managed particularly well.  The sub committee was provided with a short-list of six that we interviewed in one full day, Kevin sat in on these interviews and was very involved, and he used his independence to ask the hard questions.

All in all, an extremely professional and very cost effective exercise, we won’t hesitate to use Kevin again whenever we have to work through this exercise. With this, I do not hesitate in endorsing Kevin and the Effective Governance team."

“I would just like to pass on thanks from the Youthtown Board for the very thorough and professional job you did in assisting us to recruit new Board members.

The process you took us through clearly identified the skills and knowledge we needed to bring in; you then brought to us a talented group of candidates that complemented our needs and whose values were a great match to our organisation.

Overall the process you managed on our behalf was quick and efficient, and has delivered us an outstanding group of people at exactly the right time for the Boards development." 

We enjoy working with Kevin and look forward to continuing to work with him in the future.”
