Global Tech Pioneer in Leadership Recruitment
Martin Rowinski is a global tech ‘guru’ in every sense of the word – not only is he a pioneer in recruitment at top leadership and board level, but he’s also enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge as an international speaker and bestselling author.
An industry expert with 25 years of c-level experience, he is the co-founder and CEO of Boardsi, a prestigious SAAS-based executive recruitment firm with worldwide operations.
Martin created and spearheaded their proprietary software that allows companies to effortlessly search for the most qualified Boards of Directors and Boards of Advisors from a pool of thousands of top executives across the U.S. and internationally. This software also allows executives to find board positions in highly sought-after companies in a simple, easy, and streamlined process. This is how Boardsi specializes in helping companies build executive boards quicker, easier, and more efficiently in order to achieve exponential growth. It has also been an industry leader in curating a national private network for c-level executives.
“Boardsi started with a simple idea of connecting top executive talent with Board of Director or Advisor opportunities. Simple enough to say, but it has taken the last 6 years to reinvent and make it better month after month. Over these years, we have helped many companies with growth, with going public, and already publicly traded companies recruiting for their Board of Directors. If you are a business seeking executive talent, we are the place to help you find, interview, and recruit faster. We are the Corporate Matchmakers!”
Martin takes pride in sharing that Boardsi’s biggest strength is its exceptional team, which is always willing to work hard and go the extra mile to make something great. They are also willing to help each other with projects and tasks asked of them. “I believe what you give is what comes back to you in return. I give my employees the time and guidance they need on a daily basis. In return, they continue to give me the time and hard work we need to succeed as a company. Together we are BOARDSI!”

Downplaying his vast achievements, Martin tells us, “Appetite for growth and success is what drives us. Not only seeing growth and success at Boardsi, but also the executives and businesses we help. When we create win-win situations for our clients, in turn that creates growth and success for us.”
Martin’s continued drive and persistence to excellence has made him an authority in the field. Besides publishing articles in Forbes, Entrepreneur, FastCompany, CEO Today, etc, he is also a USA Today bestselling author of the acclaimed book – Luminary Leadership, as well as – The Corporate Matchmaker. Sharp and articulate, he’s also an international speaker as well as a start-up/early stage investor.
Based in Las Vegas, USA, for Martin, family and balance are the factors that define his life today. “The balance between company success and family is my everyday drive. Balance as a father, husband, friend, entrepreneur (CEO), and self-time. It is important to balance work and fun; work smart to play hard and have fun. Schedule time to enjoy yourself; for me, that is spending time golfing with my best friend and wife, and taking vacations with the family.”
A mentor to many in the tech industry and outside, Martin closes the interview with an important message for our readers: “Never look at failure as the end, it is the beginning of learning. You will either win, or learn. This is why when I am a speaker I talk about the Front 9 Leadership/Back 9 Management. The more you practice, the luckier you get!”
