Today the QCA launches its new report, The Role of Non Executive Directors in Growth Companies.
This report has been produced in partnership with Henley Business School and Downing LLP to investigate the differences between the role of the NED in growth companies, versus that of NEDs in large companies.
The report provides insights about how the role, and skills required, of NEDs in growth companies vary greatly. Size, complexity, type of ownership and stage of development all have an influence over the type of Chair and NED that can add value.
Based on the findings of this study, we believe there are a number of important questions that growth company NEDs and Chairs should ask of themselves to ensure they are performing in their roles, both now and prospectively.
