About the Advisory Board Centre
As the leading professional body for the advisory sector, the Advisory Board Centre works collectively with their members to raise the standard of the global advisory sector – driving value for professionals and the organisations they serve.
Authenticity is the anchor in the work the Advisory Board Centre does. From supporting the global advisory sector with a principles-led best practices foundation and certification, to the joy that comes from sharing knowledge with others – their actions and words are congruent with their beliefs and values.
“With over 22 years of ‘on-the-ground’ presence in emerging and developed markets, Pedersen & Partners has grown together with our clients, and we aim to deliver value and impact for our partners. We are delighted to launch this partnership with the Advisory Board Centre to address our clients’ increasing need to strengthen and complement their corporate governance structures with agile and ‘fit-for-purpose’ Advisory Boards, allowing them to advance their strategic objectives.” Mark Paviour, Global Head of the Board Services Practice at Pedersen & Partners.
“In the increasingly complex governance environment being faced by corporates, high-growth companies and disruptive challengers, Advisory Boards can help to manage risk and/or maximise opportunity. The Advisory Board Centre promotes best practices in their set-up and application and therefore, is an ideal partner for our firm”, adds Andrew Thomson, a Certified Advisory Board Chair and member of Pedersen & Partners’ Global Board Services Practice.
As the corporate agenda develops and volatility becomes a constant feature of the business landscape, advisory boards present a practical and effective way for organisations to confidently make decisions and chart a course forward.
“Pedersen & Partners is a future-focused partner with which the Advisory Board Centre are thrilled to be aligned. Their demonstrated commitment to best practices and ethical engagement in the advisory board sector is a meaningful point of difference, representing an enduring benefit for their clients and stakeholders. With an active footprint in over 50 markets worldwide, we are excited to work with Pedersen & Partners in supporting their rapidly growing Advisory Board Practice,” remarked Udo Doring, Chair and Director of the Advisory Board Centre.
