"VCTs are interesting but complex investment vehicles. We were seeking a Chairman-elect who would relish the challenge and bring a new dimension to the board. Nurole‘s methodology offered access to candidates who might not appear on conventional head-hunters’ radar but had put themselves forward for good reason and the use of modern IT appealed greatly. We were delighted with the result."
