Non-executive directors

The non-executive director’s role is to facilitate a creative contribution to the board by providing independent oversight and constructive challenge to the executive directors. This person quickly adds value to your business, bringing an independent judgement on issues of strategy, performance and resources including key appointments and standards of conduct. Non-executive directors provide important input in the proper running of companies.

For new and diversifying businesses the addition of a non-executive director may help become a more credible candidate to acquire blue-chip customers or to achieve a higher premium for your services. 

The non-executive director can also assist when your business needs more rigorous compliance with regulations or business standards.
