Directors’ Register


Independent Directors

Independent directors play a vital role on boards in providing independent judgement in all circumstances.

Codes of corporate governance usually recommend as a fundamental principle that all companies to which the relevant code applies should have independent directors on their boards.

GCC Board Diretors Institute (GCC BDI) is creating a pool of directors and senior executives from cross sections of industries and professions which will enable companies to recruit suitable independent directors for their board and for GCC BDI Alumni and Corporate Members to promote themselves as potential independent director to sit on the boards of other organizations.
