This is an excerpt and slight rewrite of a press release written by Boyden about hiring two new executives. This summary highlights the hiring of Dr. Keith D. Dorsey.

Senior advisor and business academic in professional services and corporate governance brings unique expertise to clients.

Boyden, a premier leadership and talent advisory firm with more than 75 offices in over 45 countries, is delighted to welcome corporate governance expert Keith Dorsey as a Partner in California.

Trina D. Gordon, President & CEO of Boyden shares, “Boyden’s role in global business and society is highlighted by these two new partners. [..] Keith will help clients transform the boardroom, aligning governance to our complex global landscape. Boyden partners are driven to help create a better world”.

Keith Dorsey joins Boyden’s global board practice specializing in board consulting, CEO search and director search. A growth-focused executive advisor throughout his career, he has experience in private equity, preparation for IPOs and other events involving governance and portfolio oversight.

Dorsey is a distinguished academic, with an Ed. D in organizational change and leadership from the University of Southern California, specializing in board diversity, with a particular focus on the experiences and successes of black female corporate directors.

“I was attracted to Boyden because the partners really do think outside the box and pursue new ways of working to help clients,” comments Keith Dorsey. “This is invaluable today, when society is pushing boards to look more like their stakeholders, which means gently disrupting the system. Leaders want to do things differently, but need the right guidance and skills to understand the ‘how’ in a changing world. Boyden is uniquely set up to get different results in a different way, going the extra mile to put the right individuals in front of the right boards. ‘From titles to skills sets’ is the shift we need to make, to understand the true diversity of talent available to boards”.

Keith Dorsey has over 25 years’ leadership experience in human capital management, in executive, consulting and board roles. He was previously President / Executive Advisor, Dorsey Management Consulting, and Executive Vice President, Global Head of Sales, at Alight Solutions and Aon Hewitt. He is a Board Member of software firm Vimly Benefit Solutions, Pepperdine Graziadio Business School and a Member of the Financial Advisory Commission of the City of La Quinta. He holds an MBA from Pepperdine University’s Graziadio Business School, a Bachelor’s degree in business administration from Charter Oak State College, New Britain, CT, and is a Certified Director and Governance Fellow, National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD).
