Non-Executive Director (SMCR) - Redmayne Bentley

Location: Leeds, West Yorkshire
Salary: £ Attractive
Reference: NENB / NED-RB
Job Type: Permanent
Sector: Senior Finance
Closing date: 28/08/2020

The company

Established in 1875, Redmayne Bentley is one of the largest independent private client investment management and stockbroking firms in the UK, with over £2.1bn of client assets, £5.3bn of funds under management and more than 100 investment managers across 30 offices throughout the UK. As an independently-owned partnership, they are not beholden to short-term shareholder demands. Instead, Redmayne Bentley are aligned with their clients and focused on the long term, which sets them apart from many of their competitors. As might be expected from a firm with such a heritage, Redmayne Bentley are proud that they continue to enjoy both low staff turnover and high levels of client loyalty – something which speaks volumes about their approach to business.

The job

In April 2019 Redmayne Bentley launched a 5 year plan which amongst other things set their ambition to double Assets under Management (AuM) to £5bn in 5 years. This ambitious plan along with the recent introduction of Senior Manager and Certification Regime (SMCR) regulation is the reason why they are now actively recruiting an additional Non-Executive Director with audit experience to join the Main Board. The successful candidate will support the Main Board members in providing effective strategic and operational leadership, Chair and lead the Audit Committee agenda in line with the requirements of the Firm, regulatory and governance expectations. With a recognised accounting qualification and credible previous Board experience, applicants will be strategic, analytical and innovative. Experience as a CFO/FD or audit partner in a financial services business is highly preferable and the successful candidate will ideally benefit from a sound commercial track record that demonstrates good judgement and market understanding.

The person

Redmayne Bentley are proud of their continued commitment to a friendly, client and people focussed culture that is driven by their values of Excellence, Integrity, Respect, Responsibility and Teamwork. The successful candidate will be an individual who can not only provide the necessary technical experience and skills to fulfil a role on their Board but also someone that will genuinely embrace their values which are lived everyday by the Board and provide a framework for the rest of the business to deliver their continued growth success. The time commitment is approximately 36 days a year including the 12 main board meeting dates.

Non-Executive Director - Trackwise Plc

Location: London
Date Posted: 20/02/2020
Closing Date: 16/03/2020

Role: 1095

To apply, please click 'here'

For further information on the company please see:

Website | Annual Report | Board of Directors

A Non-Executive Director (Non Exec) is required for Trackwise Designs Plc an exciting, AIM listed manufacturing company of specialist products using innovative, printed circuit technology, for a wide range of potential applications including telecommunications, aviation, automotive and defence. Products are exported around the world, including the USA, Australia, Europe and China. UK headquarters are in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

In 1996 Trackwise was asked to produce its first antenna PCB, a nine-foot-long unit for an early GSM900 mobile phone base station antenna. This large format PCB capability, while not unique, was and is exceptional and remains a key differentiator. Since 2010, Trackwise has been developing its proprietary and innovative manufacturing process that enables the globally unique capability of producing flexible multi-layer printed circuit boards of unlimited length. Marketed as Improved Harness Technology™ (IHT) these boards offer a lightweight replacement for conventional wire harnesses with multiple applications across the aerospace, automotive, oil and gas industries.

The Board meets 10 times pa in Gloucestershire plus Sub-Committees and 2 strategy days; the time requirement will be 2-3 days per month covering formal and informal time plus initially more during induction. The remuneration is iro £35k pa.

Business Concept & Strategy

2018 was a landmark year for the Trackwise; following their IPO, they moved to a new manufacturing facility, achieved a major shift in impetus in the development of a unique, patented, wire harness replacement technology – Improved Harness Technology™ (“IHT”) and successfully floated the business on the London AIM market.

2018 revenues increased by 23% compared to the previous year with increasing adjusted operating profit to £325K (2017: £67K).
The legacy RF business will continue to underpin the business, but as at IPO the growth opportunity is “IHT” which is a unique, proprietary, patented technology. It is not a new technology, but a new method of manufacturing a proven technology that opens applicability to a vast new range of applications.
Unlimited length multi-layer flexible PCBs are unique to Trackwise and represent a disruptive technological process that releases proven advantages over traditional wire harnesses to a significant total addressable market, previously excluded by historic supply chain size limits.
The opportunities for IHT are extremely diverse; wherever wire is used, IHT can potentially offer a benefit, which are:

  • Weight saving – up to 75 per cent
  • Space Saving
  • Improved precision
  • Improved reliability
  • Reduced installation time
  • Ability to be bonded onto/into supporting structure
  • Ability to integrate electronic components, changing an entirely passive interconnect into a ‘smart harness’

Non-Exec Director Requirements/Criteria

  • Board level, Executive or Non-Exec, within the high-tech engineering/manufacturing sector with experience of growing a business from £20m to £100m+.
  • Strong strategic and commercial expertise.
  • Must be entrepreneurial and understand the challenges of an early stage business.
  • Must have business leadership, M&A, organic growth, client relationships, contracts and negotiations experience.
  • Strong international experience.
  • Ideally experience of Chairing the Audit Sub-Committee - qualified accountant not essential.
  • You should have enough time availability to make an effective contribution.
  • Applicants must be based in the UK, within 2 hour travel time to the Head Office in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

Time commitment is 2-3 days per month for Board and Audit Committee meetings plus 2 strategy days, initially more during induction. Board meetings are held ten times pa in Tewkesbury and business update calls. Remuneration will be iro £35k per annum.
