Business Start Ups: Appointing a non-executive Director

As your business grows it may be useful to appoint someone to provide independent advice on how to grow the business further.

There is a growing trend amongst SME’s to appoint non-executive Directors. A non-executive Director does not have day to day involvement in the business but nevertheless, still has the same legal responsibilities as any other Director. They provide advice to the executive Directors with strategy and decision making. Non-executive Directors can give your business additional credibility as well as acting as your critical friend.
