NED, NXD & SID

A non-executive director (abbreviated to non-exec, NED or NXD), senior independent director or external director is a member of the board of directors of a company or organisation, but not a member of the executive management team.

A good Non Executive Director or Senior Independent Director can help your business in a number of ways:

    Independent counsel – they do not have ‘skin in the game’ like the executive board, so they can be a truly dispassionate ‘critical friend’ in assessing your business
    Broad perspective – they are not the finance director, the marketing director, or the managing director, focussing on one key area of responsibility, but they can step back and view how all these roles fit together in terms of overarching strategy
    Diverse viewpoints – a varied set of commercial experiences to shed light on alternate points of view and provide experiential wisdom in dealing with new situations
    Access to an expanded network – bringing their own ‘black book’ of contacts whom they can call on for advice, or to broker new connections for your firm
    Assistance with governance – if your NED has experience in governance, then they can take on the ‘boring, back room’ work, to enable you to focus on ‘running the business’
