The Chairman and the Top Team
This chapter considers the positions of deputy chairman and senior independent director as one. An advantage of combining both positions is that it avoids creating an extra post at board level and with it the possibility of overlap and confusion between the two roles. This places the deputy chairman in a position to play a leading part in the board team, whether the chairman and the chief executive are one and the same person, or two people. If there is both a chairman and a chief executive, then the deputy chairman completes the triumvirate which constitutes the team at the top.
