Who would I choose from outside the design industry as a non-executive director (Voxpop, DW 11 February)? It depends what I would want one for: to drive efficiencies, grow, sell, develop myself, develop my board and so on. Do I even need a non-executive to help find the non- executive? It’s an important decision because they will have great influence. Perhaps Rear-Admiral Roy Clare RN Rtd. Why? Because he’s an incisive thinker who I like a lot.
