Directors' roles and responsibilities



July 2009

Did you know that as a rule privately-owned companies with a non-executive director on the board have higher profit margins?

Here is a briefing (opens as a PDF) on the roles and responsibilities of non-executive directors of private companies – from the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland.

This is useful reading both for companies thinking of appointing a non-executive director, and for people thinking of accepting an offer to become one. It is in fact useful reading for any director of any company.

OnHand Counsel’s Andrew James is willing to consider being appointed as a non-executive director in appropriate circumstances, and may also be able to help you to source other experienced potential non-executive directors from a variety of backgrounds who have the confidence and ability to add value to your board.
