Our Board of Directors is made up of a Non Executive Chairman, two Non Executive and three Executive Directors.
Our Board is responsible to shareholders for the overall strategy and direction of the Group within a framework of prudent and effective controls which enables risk to be assessed and managed. It has a regular schedule of meetings and a formal schedule of matters reserved to it for decision, including decisions on strategy and direction, acquisitions and disposals, major capital expenditure and risk assessment and assurance. In certain areas, specific responsibility is delegated to committees of our Board within clearly defined terms of reference.
The roles of our Chairman and our Chief Executive Officer are separate and clearly defined. The Chief Executive Officer is responsible for the executive management of the Group's business while the Chairman is responsible for the leadership of the Board.
Robert Barr is our Senior Independent Non Executive Director who is available to shareholders if they have concerns which cannot be resolved through normal Company channels.
All directors have access to the advice and services of our Company Secretary, who is responsible for ensuring that Board procedures and applicable rules and regulations are observed. There is an agreed procedure for Directors to take independent professional advice at WYG’s expense, if necessary, in the performance of their duties.
