Chairman & NED Survey 2016

Life in the Boardroom 2016, the MM&K Chairman and Non-Executive Director Survey

The 2016 MM&K survey report of company chairmen and non-executive directors (NEDs), Life in the Boardroom, is now available.


The survey covers directors’ fees and time commitments, as well as their views on a range of current board issues. Data was collected between July and September 2016.The survey is unique in that we collect data directly from the directors themselves, rather than from company staff or annual reports. We think this provides a more accurate and nuanced picture of board practices, and makes our survey the most authoritative and reliable of its kind. We thank the 166 individuals who contributed this year. Between them, these directors cover a total of 313 board appointments of which 147 are chairmanships.

The report is free to participants in electronic form and in hard copy on request. Non-participants may purchase the report for £250 (plus VAT where applicable) for individuals and £1,000 for firms. We have been publishing Life in the Boardroom for 26 years.
