Exec&Boards Our Difference

Our Difference


Structured in micro-specialist teams nationally, we have an intimate understanding of our client’s sectors and the attributes and competencies required to meet the expectations, challenges and opportunities in the changing landscape. 

We are passionate advocates for a heightened candidate and client experience and have carefully crafted a unique, considered, and innovative customer journey. Davidson Executive & Boards is also one of the very few executive search firms in Australia that utilise Net Promoter Score (NPS) as a standard measure of the level of service we provide to both candidates and clients.

Research, Analytics and Knowledge Management 

Our expert in-house research team takes a considered and methodical approach to building our research, analytics and knowledge management capability, and leverage multiple platforms and channels to identify and engage exceptional leaders on domestic and international search engagements. In particular, they have unique access to a range of talent communities and can provide real-time talent data on specific executive groups, including key skills, diversity, mobility and tenure. 

Importantly this function also helps inform our approach to diversity. Davidson Executive & Boards has a particular focus on diversity and its positive impact on workplace performance, and we are a proud and active champion in all aspects of diversity and equal opportunities across Australia. 


We are a pioneer in the art and science of what we do and how we do it. The leaders we engage, assess and develop are ultimately accountable for delivering on strategic, operational and people imperatives of an organisation and the risks can be significant. Yet, so are the opportunities. 

Supported by our team of in-house organisational psychologists and accredited consultants, the four distinct, but integrated offerings include: 

  • Success Profiling – a competency-based process that helps define role and organisation imperatives 
  • Research, Analytics and Knowledge Management – we have access to next-generation data analytic tools to inform decision making 
  • Assessment and Selection – innovative, holistic and competency-based assessment methodology that mitigates hiring risks and maximises value 
  • On-Boarding and Accelerated Performance – a suite of unique tools and workshops to ensure smooth on-boarding and accelerated performance.


Utilising our vast networks, we identify, attract and have access to leading Executives with the right skills and experience to help enhance your workplace performance.

Our Consultants are active members of a number of industry bodies and are often called upon to write articles based on their years of experience and personal research on the subject matter.​​​
