Nomination Committee

The Nomination Committee is responsible for making recommendations to the board on appointments and on maintaining a balance of skills and experience on the board and its committees.

'During the year, the work of the Nomination Committee was focused on the process for the recruitment of a non-executive director to join the board and chair the Remuneration Committee, ensuring that the new director had the attributes, skills and experience needed to make a positive contribution to enable the board to continue to be effective, during what is a period of significant change for the Group. The committee also considered the board’s composition and diversity in light of the current and future needs of the Group as well as succession planning.'

John Connolly, Nomination Committee Chairman

The Nomination Committee’s remit covers broadly five areas. These are: board composition, making recommendations to the board on appointments (based on merit and objective criteria, with a view to maintaining a balance of skills and experience on the board and its committees and to promote diversity), succession planning for the board and the group executive committee and the development of a diverse pipeline, board performance evaluation and annual reporting.
