True Search, the fastest growing executive search firm and 7th largest by revenue in North America, announced the launch of its new sister company AboveBoard, an inclusive executive hiring platform. True co-founded AboveBoard with the goal of making executive search more accessible, efficient and equitable for its members and the companies who seek them. The diversity-focused startup brings an innovative, transparent solution to the critical need to bring more women and executives of color to leadership roles.

AboveBoard’s members can view, and express interest in, any of the hundreds of full-time and board roles listed on AboveBoard’s platform. This new approach to executive recruitment disrupts a decades-old model by putting control directly in prospective candidates’ hands.
Conversely, companies and investment firms that use AboveBoard benefit from direct access to any executive interested in their opportunities. Further, companies can deploy AboveBoard to support their efforts to recruit more underrepresented leaders thanks to the self-reported demographic information members are welcomed to provide.

For both candidates and companies, this level of transparency has never before existed.
“In many ways, True Search and AboveBoard are complementary businesses that each offer creative executive talent solutions,” said Joe Riggione, True co-CEO and AboveBoard Board Director. “AboveBoard co-founder and CEO Lucinda Duncalfe is doing an incredible job leading the business and positioning it to make a significant impact on executives’ careers and companies’ talent strategies, most importantly around diversity,” Riggione added.
“The executive search industry as a whole has failed to consistently deliver diverse executive talent pools to hiring companies. AboveBoard corrects this issue by providing inclusive candidate slates and empowering those executives to see all available opportunities,” said Brad Stadler, True co-CEO and AboveBoard Board Director. “AboveBoard’s powerful sourcing solutions can complement traditional retained executive search by helping companies hire more under-represented leaders, and ultimately improve business outcomes,” Stadler added.
