Anyone know about ExecReps? "Agents" for execs to get onto boards of directors...
(CEO/CFO) | Sep 23, 2013
I was contacted by a company called Execreps, which is essentially a talent agency for corporate execs. To wit, if you are a CFO and want to get on to corporate boards, they will help you find those positions, get the inside track through their connections/reach, and then they take a %. It's an interesting idea and I can see the potential value. And I do want to get board directorships and continue climbing and contributing. However, they take an up front fee which rubs me the wrong way (I'm better with their ongoing commission % b/c at least they have to have helped you earn it first), and I don't know them from Adam, so I am dubious and, of course, I know I'm hearing a sales pitch (I don't blame them, it just is what it is). I'd love to know whether anyone is familiar with this model or this company itself and can share their experience before I spend more time on it.
