We have strengthened our board with the appointment of two new directors following the recent board meeting. The make-up of the board reflects the growing importance for the QCA to address challenges including Brexit, the future of growth markets and the developing nature of market regulation.

Adam McConkey, an experienced senior fund manager investing in small and mid-size quoted companies, and James Brotherton, Chief Financial Officer of Tyman PLC, have been appointed directors of the QCA.

Adam McConkey is head of the eight-strong Volantis investment management team and Director of UK Smaller Companies at AlphaGen Capital, a subsidiary of Henderson Group plc that is being acquired by Lombard Odier Investment Managers. The team manages more than $1 billion in assets and is focused on UK small-caps. Adam joined Henderson in 2011 as part of the acquisition of Gartmore. where he headed the UK Smaller Companies team with responsibility for all UK Small Cap Retail, Investment Trusts and Institutional mandates.  

James Brotherton is CFO of Tyman, a leading international supplier of engineered components to the door and window industry with operations across the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australasia.
