His knowledge of market regulation and international business practice spanning the US, continental Europe and southeast Asia will be of enormous value to us. As a current FTSE 100 company chairman Glen brings a fresh perspective to our work on corporate governance and investor engagement. It is a mark of the FRC’s strong reputation within the business community that we have attracted someone of Glen’s calibre and I very much look forward to working with him.”
