The purpose of the paper is to provide an informed but personal view on the debate surrounding the role of the non‐executive director and the board.
The approach is that of a practitioner recruiting non‐executive directors. The author offers a personal view.
The author has had extensive discussions with both chairmen and non‐executive directors of FTSE companies and the views in the paper reflect these discussions.
