Ffion Hague, a newly appointed director at headhunting firm Hanson Green, said she planned to build on the company’s record of placing 16 woman in 21 appointments in the last year.

‘There are two few female directors,’ Hague said in today’s FT.

Her comments come as fresh research from Cranfield University revealed that just 3% of executives in the FTSE 100 were women.

Hague also weighed into the current debate on non-executive directors, saying it was a time for things to change in the way they are recruited and the way they are encouraged to make a contribution to the company.
