#GreatHires – Trustees Unlimited appoints 3 trustees to B Lab UK
We were immensely proud to support B Lab UK with their recent trustee recruitment and delighted to see the appointment of three outstanding candidates to their board.
In recruiting new trustees B Lab UK were keen to include the perspectives of people who could help them reach further, faster, and represent voices currently missing from the B Corp community. Their board recruitment had to reflect not just the skills and experience required, but also the need to work with a wide range of stakeholders across the UK.
Congratulations to Nicola Clark OBE, George King IV and Thom Kenrick.
Nicola Clark OBE, CEO of UMi, a Durham-based B Corp with a footprint across England, Northern Ireland, and Scotland. UMi has strong experience with SMEs and is fully employee owned. Nicki brings substantial trustee experience in a range of organisations and enterprises whose services support and create better opportunities for young people.
George King IV, a senior investment professional with 30 years of financial markets experience. George has worked with investors from around the world on portfolio construction across all major asset classes and multiple currency regimes.
