A “Non-executive director” (NED), while having the same legal obligations and responsibilities as a company “executive” serving as a director on the company Board, brings an objective view and breadth of experience that supports good governance and strategic thinking. Ideally a NED should also bring specialist knowledge to the board but more importantly NEDs maintain an independent view of the company and its Board, and play a valuable role in monitoring executive management. As the Institute of Directors states: “The Cadbury, Hampel and Higgs reports, some of whose recommendations are included in the revised Combined Code, stress that the board should include independent non-executive directors of sufficient calibre and number for their views to carry significant weight in the board’s deliberations.” The Board Advisor Firm is highly experienced in using specialist knowledge, contacts, and policy-based governance to work in a Non-Executive Director role to help your company.
