The Company is led by a strong and experienced board of directors which brings a depth and diversity of expertise to the leadership of the Company.
The Board is responsible for the long term success of the Company, determining the strategic direction as well as reviewing operating, financial and risk performance. Responsibility for the development of policy and strategy and operational management is delegated to the executive directors and an executive committee.
The board of directors delegates some of its responsibilities to three committees.
The Audit Committee, chaired by Martin Griffiths, and supported by fellow non-executive directors, meets at least three times a year and otherwise as required.
The Remuneration Committee, chaired by David Ritchie, and supported by fellow non-executive directors, meets at least twice a year and otherwise as required.
The Nomination Committee, chaired by John Nicolson, and supported by fellow non-executive directors, meets at least once a year and otherwise as required.
The structure of the Board and our Board Committees, as well as information on our system of internal control and risk management, is described in detail in the Governance Report in our Annual Report here.
