Non Executive Directors

The Board of Non-Executive Directors brings together individuals drawn from a range of industries and backgrounds. They provide vital expertise and guidance in areas such as governance, human resources, legal and finance. The Board meets approximately every three months and also participates in strategic and business planning 'away' sessions. The Finance sub-committee meets monthly and discusses issues including financial planning, capital investment and levels of authority.
