A director is a member of the body that is responsible for the strategic business direction of an entity and the implementation of its corporate governance, and which makes the decisions that determine its success and integrity. This may include a divisional director where the division is equivalent to an entity of substance; or a leader of an entity not conducted for commercial purposes.

  • Not-for-profit organisations, charities or trusts
