Lead non-executive brings business and sector skills as part of Government-wide initiative.
His appointment follows a cross-Whitehall exercise to appoint lead non-executive directors to the boards of each Government department, with the aim of improving governance across the Civil Service and overhauling departmental boards.
Jeremy Hunt said: “David has an extensive background in business, the arts and media. He will make a huge contribution to the department and our sectors. David will help shape our business plan and challenge progress on our goals. Along with the other new lead non-executive members across Whitehall he will help ensure that the whole of Government is run in a more business-like manner.”
