Governance Professional of the Year

The Chartered Governance Institute Awards 2020

Nasdaq Governance Solutions are proud to be the headline sponsor for the 2020 Awards. The Chartered Governance Institute Awards ceremony is the largest event of its kind in the UK and the highlight of the governance social calendar. The shortlisted nominees reflect the very best achievement from across the governance community.

It has been a strange year for all and especially those helping to run organisations and managing entities around the world. We are pleased to have seen a tremendous amount of work that has gone in to continuing and strengthening good governance over the past eight months as several new challenges have emerged.

Governance Professional of the Year

Of particular importance, in 2020, is the award for Governance Professional of the Year. Good governance professionals now more than ever play a crucial role in managing reputation, identifying risk and ensuring longevity for an organisation. As a provider of a wide range of governance solutions across sectors, we are pleased to be aligned with The Chartered Governance Institute Awards as they highlight and celebrate Governance Professional of the Year. In this current, particularly challenging climate, individuals must be commended for their outstanding performance.

Over the last decade, the role of the governance professional has grown in scope from technical expert to strategic enabler. Increased regulation and emphasis on governance across all sectors and organisations suggest that this trend will continue and that demand for skilled professionals who can balance regulatory compliance with their organisation’s commercial interests and social purpose will remain high.

Being an effective governance professional means enabling the board to set and achieve the strategic goals of the organisation. This requires mastery of specialist knowledge combined with strong values, emotional intelligence and the ability to apply understanding in the particular context of the organisation and its wider environment.

Why is this Governance Professional of the Year so important? This award celebrates that achievement and recognises those individuals who have made a positive and sustained contribution, who have gone above and beyond to encourage, support or even lead the adoption of effective governance. They may have built powerful relationships with a variety of stakeholders, or taken on a high-profile project that had a materially positive impact, or demonstrated significant leadership in the achievement of departmental and organisational objectives.

Shortlist for Governance Professional of the Year:

  • Valerie Andre, Regional Governance Manager (Western Europe), Willis Towers Watson
  • Paul Denton, Deputy Company Secretary, North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust
  • Ibi Eso, Director, Bridgehouse Company Secretaries Limited
  • Gilbert George, Director of Corporate Governance /Trust Secretary, Black Country Health Care NHS Foundation Trust
  • Fatima Al Meeni, Head of Governance and Compliance, Ministry of Human Resources and Emiratisation (MOHRE)

The 2020 Awards ceremony will take a socially distanced approach this year and will be hosted virtually, and winners will be announced on 26 November. We look forward to celebrating with our friends, colleagues, peers, judges, sponsors and partners in recognising the very best the profession has to offer.
