Director Factsheets

This Director Factsheet is courtesy of McCann FitzGerald

The chairperson of the board of directors and the managing director/ chief executive officer (“CEO”) exercise important roles in the corporate governance structure of a company. It is best corporate governance practice that the roles of chairperson and CEO are performed by different people, although in a small company it may be the case that the roles are combined.
