Board of Directors/Advisory Board

The Board of Directors or an Advisory Board is an important strategic tool and advisor to any company and Management Board.

The Board assists owners in creating and achieving the overall direction and business objectives playing a key role in creating the strategy, securing risk control procedures and financial performance. And in securing the right competencies and leaders to execute. 

The value of a Board

An Advisory Board is, of course, nor legally binding. But it creates important value as the Board brings competencies and “new eyes” to the company. Smaller companies also has the opportunity “to practice” before a real board is established.

No matter the model the advantage is to bring new people and competencies to inspire and challenge as well as contributing to implement strategies. Furthermore, a professional Board can open doors to new cooperation partners and be a seal of approval towards for examples banks.

“In 2011 Jette participated as management consultant in the development of our ambitious strategic growth plan. Following this the owner group invited Jette to join our Board of Directors where she was appointed chairman in 2013. A role she performs to perfection.

Her contribution covers from proactive participation in the strategy process to a constructive way of challenging our daily work. And; our cooperation is joyful and filled with positive energy.
