THE ROAD TO N.E.D.: NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR by Rudina de Lange
The ambition to become a NED, i.e. Non-Executive Board Member (“RvC lid”), I already had for a while. In 2020 I would turn 50 & Be a boardroom strategy advisor for 25 years and NED looked for me the right next step in my career. But how to become a NED? Our study, IEM, and career paths prepare us for management and executive roles. Being a NED is a truly different role, i.e. Supervisory Board vs. Managing Board. And how persons are selected and nominated is an opaque process (at least it was for me …). Last year I was appointed as NED at Go-Tan, a family company producing Asian food and ingredients for retail and foodservice clients in twenty European countries. How I got there, my steps / lessons learned / tips, is what I would like to share with all of you.
