ICAEW to launch register of non-execs
A new register of non-executive directors is to be launched in the hope of providing a list of accountants willing to take on the board level posts.
Launched by the ICAEW, the register is viewed by the institute as a way of increasing the number of people willing to be non-executives and help listed companies find qualified financial experts to sit on their boards.
According to the Financial Times the move is said to have received government backing.
The institute believes up to 48,000 members could put their names to the register.
