Independent Directors

Independent directors play a vital role on boards in providing independent judgement in all circumstances.

The Code of Corporate Governance for Mauritius provides that all companies to which the Code applies should have at least two independent directors on their boards.

 

Directors’ Register

The Directors’ Register of the MIoD consists of a pool of directors and senior executives from cross sections of industries and professions which enables companies to recruit suitable independent directors for their board and for MIoD Members and Fellows to promote themselves as potential independent director to sit on the boards of other organisations.

Being listed on the Register is exclusive to MIoD Fellows and Members and is free of charge. To register for the Directors’ Register as a prospective independent director, please complete this form

Your profile on the Register will be visible only to MIoD staff, who will carry out searches for companies wishing to appoint an independent director.
