Braveheart’s board is made up of two executive directors and we are actively seeking to replace our non-executive director, who recently resigned from his role. We will keep this arrangement under review and will appoint additional director(s) as soon as practical, to provide appropriate oversight.

In the interim period, until a non-executive director is appointed, Vivian Hallam will chair each board meeting.

We expect all our directors to devote as much time as is required to carry out the roles and responsibilities they have each agreed to take on. This generally means that Vivian Hallam is full time and Trevor Brown is part time.

You can read more about each of our directors below.

Executive and non-executive directors are re-elected at least once every three years. You can inspect the letters of appointment for all Braveheart’s directors at our registered office during normal business hours.

The board meets at least eight times a year to formulate, review and approve the group’s strategy, budgets, performance, major capital expenditure and corporate actions. Meetings are open and constructive and every director participates fully.

The board also has an audit committee and a remuneration committee. As appointments to the board are made by the board as a whole there is no need for a nominations committee.
