Over the last few years we have interviewed a wide range of highly experienced professionals including senior executives, independent portfolio Non-Executive Directors (NED) and Trustees. These interviews give you insights into, and the opportunity to learn from, the journeys of those who have been successful at finding NED / Trustee roles.
Paul is a Non-Executive Director, with 35 years unbroken experience operating along the entirety of the Financial Services value chain, including Asset Management, Life and Pensions provision, Worksite Benefits, Retail Distribution and Platform/Software as a Service (PaaS/SaaS). He has proven capabilities as a senior adviser, an interim c-suite executive and NED, working with FTSE, NYSE, Euronext and AIM quoted firms, Mutual organisations, P/E and management owned businesses and limited liability partnerships.
Jane is one of the UK’s leading Food Industry Experts. She works with producers, innovators and retailers helping them develop ideas and bring them to market cost-effectively, expediently and successfully.
She is actively involved on a number of Boards of food businesses, and has 30 years expertise in the food industry and a proven track record for helping food businesses achieve great results.
With an executive background in technology, media and telecoms, and specialising in consumer propositions and partnerships, Monica has successfully transitioned into a plural portfolio Non-Executive position early in her working life. Focussing on NED board advisory, coaching and consulting, she believes the biggest lesson starts with shared values, and the integrity with which a board conducts itself.
Sarah began her career meeting and evaluating over 250 mid-market businesses to assess whether RBS, and latterly Praesidian Capital, should invest. Since 2015, she has worked in tech start-ups, both as a consultant, adviser, and founder. Alongside this, she has worked as a Non-Executive Director on the board of a specialist bank, a home care franchise business, and a banking software provider.
With her co-founder Scarlett, Sarah launched DynamicBoards.co.uk to shake up the NED vacancy advertising market and make it easy (and free!) for people to find and apply for NED roles. Their vision is that in the years to come we’ll see more multi-generational boards, and more tech and marketing skills on boards.
