Brickendon names Clare Chalmers as a non-executive director

Jun 4, 2018 | News, Women

Brickendon has strengthened its executive board with the appointment of Clare Chalmers as a non-executive director. Her role is to advise the fast-growing transformational consultancy on growth and strategy.

Chalmers, who specialises in advising financial services firms on board effectiveness, will provide guidance to Brickendon’s leadership team on the overall direction and strategy of the firm. Her appointment increases the diversity of the board. It achieves one of Brickendon’s Women in Finance Charter diversity targets 18 months ahead of schedule.

Chalmers, who runs Clare Chalmers Ltd., an independent provider of board effectiveness reviews, is also a senior advisor of the Board Review Practice at Independent Audit Limited. She developed her understanding of corporate governance and performance evaluation during a 20-year career in investment banking. Her roles included COO positions at CSFB and Lehman Brothers and CEO at IDDAS, a leading provider of board effectiveness reviews.

Brickendon, the award-winning transformational management and technology consultancy which has just turned eight, is expanding significantly thanks to its innovative and tailored solutions. The firm reported 33 per cent growth in project numbers last year. It is looking to build on this as it increases its expertise in areas such as cloud technologies, digital methodologies, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Blockchain.

“I am delighted to be joining the board and I’m committed to helping Brickendon continue to build on its existing impressive global strategy and growth,” said Chalmers.

Brickendon Chief Executive Christopher Burke added: “We are very excited to welcome Clare to the Brickendon team. Her extensive experience working with the boards of some of the most significant UK companies will be a great asset as we continue to grow our business.”

Brickendon joined the Women in Finance Charter in the UK last July, emphasising its commitment to a fair and balanced financial services industry. At the time, Brickendon pledged to recruit at least one female non-executive director to the board by December 2019. Brickendon is also committed to achieving 50 per cent female representation in senior management by the end of 2019.
