Top UK Company Bosses to Join New Business Growth Fund
The chief executives of some of the UK’s best-known companies have agreed to lend their expertise to the new Business Growth Fund (BGF) as non-executive board members, including:
Stephen Welton, CEO of the BGF, said: “All four of our new non-executive directors have first hand experience of leading and growing businesses in the UK and abroad. There is a clear focus on being relevant to business at a local level across the country, a recognition that many of our investments will come from families, and a desire to reach out and nurture a spirit of entrepreneurial success. Their expertise and input as board members will be invaluable to the BGF and to our investee companies.
“Businesses need to understand that securing investment from the BGF is about more than just money. Our partnership approach and sharing of expertise, guidance and contacts will be almost as valuable as the cash we inject into their businesses. Confidence as well as aspiration are key watchwords of the BGF,” he added.
