Meet Irene Seiferling

All organizations -- businesses, family-owned enterprises, professional practices, business partnerships, and non-profit organizations -- need effective, value-added governance and unified leadership.

Meet Irene Seiferling

Irene Seiferling is the founder and President of Board Dynamics. Irene is a respected corporate governance consultant, family business adviser and corporate director.

Irene brings more than three decades of experience to her work, helping over 350 businesses, the public sector, professional associations and not-for-profit organizations. The ultimate goal is to build strong governance systems, competent, dedicated leadership and cultures of success.

As an accredited family business adviser, Irene supports family enterprises and private firms in succession planning and governance.

She facilitates the succession process, establishing exit plans and goals, and guiding all-important conversations which are critical to smooth succession for the owners, partners and management.

Irene is deeply involved in many aspects of her community as a volunteer and as a mentor. In addition to serving on boards in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors, she regularly provides pro bono governance advice to not-for-profit boards, aspiring directors and young women leaders.

Board Dynamics


“Throughout my professional career, my work has been grounded in personal relationships with my clients. These close, personal relationships allow me to build a high level of trust with my clients, ensuring confidentiality and discretion. As I come to know and understand what clients do, I can see the aspects of governance that are unique to their situations and work with them to develop right fit solutions to problems.

I know I can offer my clients the highest return on their investment by working with them in hands-on, direct contact relationships. In return, I see boards that are confident, and who provide significant leadership.”
