Sir Andrew Likierman will be an ideal non-executive chairman, involved now for over a year as a MORI NED, experienced in both government and industry, a professor of distinction at the London Business School and as a Non-Executive Director of? Barclays Bank and the Bank of England.? He will also chair the remuneration and audit committees of the Board.”
