Developing Business Leaders Through Nonprofit Board Service


Our team has trained thousands of business executives for serving on nonprofit boards and matched over 1,000 business executives and professionals to global, national, and regional boards. Our innovative approaches promote good board matches for one employee or hundreds of employees.

Our Board Vector is an innovative model for companies to scale their nonprofit board programs with excellent training and matches.

The Board Vector is an online, virtual process to prepare and guide employees in finding the right match for productive and rewarding board experiences. Using the Board Vector’s exclusive tools and resources, employees are able to determine their board readiness, and access training videos and podcasts to support them throughout their board matching journey.

We customize each company’s board program according to their goals. These are some of the models we’ve provided for companies.

Nonprofit Boards: Boot Camp for Corporate Executives

Our Partners

Korngold Consulting worked with Clifford Chance for a number of years while I was Managing Partner for the Americas. Alice and her team matched both junior and senior partners in NYC and Washington, D.C. to global, national, and regional boards. The one-on-one matching process was impressive, resulting in many outstanding board matches. Most of the partners they matched ascended to board leadership positions. Alice also led outstanding nonprofit board leadership forums for our partners as well as our clients. I highly recommend Alice’s firm.

Craig Medwick

I very much enjoyed working with Alice on non-profit board placement. She was able to elicit what I wanted to do and match my goals and background to relevant and exciting options that I had not known existed. She is extremely well connected with a wide range of local, national and global organizations. The whole process exceeded my expectations as to the time it took and the placements I got.

Board member elected to the International Center for Research on Women and to Landesa

I had the great good fortune to be matched to a nonprofit board by Korngold Consulting during the course of their work with my law firm. I wasn’t easy to match. My interests in nonprofit work were very particular and not at all run-of-the-mill. But Alice and her team did their research and ultimately identified the perfect nonprofit board for me. Alice connected with the organization’s executive director and introduced me to him over lunch. This was nearly 12 years ago and I’ve had the honor of serving on the board ever since, as chair of the finance committee and member of the executive committee and other roles.  I’ve become deeply involved in the organization’s work (and have gotten my colleagues, friends and family involved, too) and my board service there has been a springboard to other opportunities to make a difference.  It’s no exaggeration to say that Alice started something that ended up changing my life.  I highly recommend her firm.

Board member elected to Community Change

Korngold Consulting matched me to an outstanding national board of directors, where I ultimately served in a leadership position. Korngold Consulting took the time to understand my interests, while doing a meaningful analysis of the needs of nonprofit boards that might be the right fit for me. The organization where I was matched needed my very skills in finance and real estate. At the same time, I met and worked with fellow board members that made this an incredible growth and development experience for me.”
