Shaping Innovative Executive Leadership

IBG Sacramento Office

Our Story

Starting amidst the rush of innovation in Silicon Valley, we embarked on a mission to redefine executive board composition, focusing initially on the tech, finance, and healthcare sectors. Our approach quickly set a benchmark for excellence, as we placed visionary leaders who navigated companies through times of rapid growth and technological transformation. This solid foundation in pivotal industries paved the way for our journey beyond Silicon Valley.

Domestic Expansion

As we responded to the growing need for transformative leadership, our ambitions expanded. We ventured into new territories, establishing our presence in major U.S. cities including Texas, New York, and Chicago. Each new office marked a step towards a broader vision: to foster environments where exceptional leadership thrives, stimulating growth and innovation on a grand scale. Our expansion is not just about growth; it’s about spearheading a connected, innovative world of leadership.

Celebrating New Beginnings

Our latest milestone unfolds at our new office located at the iconic Sacramento Capitol Mall Tower, crowned with an American flag—an emblem of our unwavering spirit and commitment. This expansion not only strengthens our domestic footprint but also sets the stage for our next big leap—establishing our presence in NYC by the end of 2024.

Global Impact

Our venture into international markets began with Canada, setting the stage for us as a conduit for companies aiming to connect with the U.S. market. This was the start of a global movement, extending our reach and fulfilling our vision of a worldwide network of executive talent and innovative leadership.

Cultivating Future Leadership

We do more than fill board positions. We nurture ecosystems of leadership that champion diversity, foster innovation, and move forward with a dedication to excellence and inclusivity. Our goal is to cultivate leaders who not only rise to the occasion but also shape the future—a future as diverse, dynamic, and visionary as the world itself.

Our Vision

Throughout our journey, from local roots to a global presence, our focus has never wavered: to empower companies and executives to break boundaries, achieve extraordinary outcomes, and redefine standards of success. Our story is more than a narrative of growth—it’s a testament to the power of visionary leadership and the boundless opportunities that arise when we unite for a brighter future.

From Silicon Valley to the World

Founded in Palo Alto, the heart of innovation, we began with a mission to serve Silicon Valley’s VC groups and Private Equity firms, finding exceptional leaders for their portfolios. Our success quickly propelled us beyond local borders, leading to our expansion across California, the United States, Canada, and eventually, the world.

Today, we stand as a testament to the power of vision meeting opportunity, bridging leadership gaps in companies of every size and industry on a global scale.”
