Directors Register

For Members

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

GCC BDI is creating a pool of independent directors and senior executives from cross-sections of industries and professions. This will enable companies to recruit suitable independent directors for their board and enable GCC BDI members to promote themselves as potential independent directors.

Being listed on the GCC BDI Directors Register is an exclusive benefit for GCC BDI Members and Fellows and is free of charge. This service does not apply to Associate members. For more information on how to become a Member – click here.

To sign-up to the Directors’ Register as a prospective independent director, please complete the form here, upload your CV and any other document you believe would provide useful information about your experience to date.

The Directors’ Register is a new service that GCC BDI has added for its Members and Fellows to enable them to raise their profile when searching for a board opportunity. It complements the GCC BDI Board Opportunities service whereby organisations can advertise their board vacancies freely on our website. Your profile will only be visible to the GCC BDI team who will carry out free searches on behalf of companies wishing to appoint an independent director and who may not wish to advertise. This is a matching service and not a vetting service.

However, please note that GCC BDI is not responsible for the number of board vacancies that arise or for which we are asked to conduct a search. Nor is this meant to be a recruitment service. We can only encourage all organisations to appoint independent board directors and make it easier for them to extend their search.
