Nurole is delighted to announce that the winner of its inaugural Award for the Chair who has taken on the most first time board directors is Gareth Davis.

Gareth Davis has appointed 10 first time non-executive independent directors to the boards of Wolseley, DS Smith and William Hill. Susie Cummings, Chief Executive and Founder of Nurole, commented: “Companies with greater diversity on boards perform better and easier access to that diversity is what will increase it. So chairs who take on more first timers are really making a great contribution.”

Gareth Davis, commented: “I have found that 1st timers add a great deal to a board’s composition as they are usually currently serving or very recently serving executives and thus they bring contemporary experience to the table along with a strong desire to contribute.”
