Our Team

Melissa A. Durden

Senior Associate

My Role at RSR Partners

I lead the research capabilities for our Board Recruiting Practice, working on nearly all board of director searches for the firm.

How I Deliver Impact

I have acquired intimate knowledge of our clients, having worked with them on multiple assignments over the years.

Expertise I Bring to the Firm’s Clients

I have been executing board searches and governance-based consulting engagements for more than 20 years. And have completed over 200 assignments in a vast array of industries, from Fortune 10 to mid-cap and small-cap companies to pre-IPO and private, family-owned enterprises.  I have assisted in the build-out of entire boards, comprehensive board composition gap analyses, and board compensation studies. In addition, I have contributed to several CEO searches for the firm.

I help clients achieve their goal of attracting additive expertise to their boards, whether it be diversity, sales and marketing, digital, operations, distribution, product development, compensation committee experience, or qualified financial expertise, for example.

I earned a bachelor of science degree in mathematics from Fairfield University.

Life Outside RSR Partners

My husband, two children, and I live in Trumbull, Connecticut.
