Why Boards Need Non-Executives from HR

Event co-hosted in partnership with the FT Board Director Program, London 1st May 2024.

Our Global Board and Governance Advisory Practice co-hosted this event alongside the FT Board Director Program.

Moderated by Tim Robb from our UK office, the panel discussion featured Diana Breeze, Group HR Director at Bunzl plc and Non-Executive Director (NED) at Topps Tiles plc; Devyani Vaishampayan, NED at Norman Broadbent plc and Mazars UK LLP; and Neil Hayward, Chair at Horseracing Industry People Board, NED at the National Skills Academy for Rail and at Applied Monitoring, and a Board Director at Skills Union Pte. Ltd.  During the session, we debated the value HR Directors bring as Non-Execs in the Boardroom with the panel kindly providing valuable insights on the subject, and how to successfully make the transition from executive to non-executive. Attendees included CHROs and HRDs from our client base, across the FTSE350, privately held, and Private Equity markets.

We would like to thank our panellists and guests -NEDs, CHROs and HRDs, for joining us and for their contributions.
