David Hunter's approach as a non-executive director is to discuss and understand shareholder objectives, then to work with management - either internal or outsourced - to meet these objectives.
His key philosophy is that investors must understand exactly what a company’s management and board are seeking to achieve. This provides a platform for accountability and for obtaining shareholder support for changes in direction where appropriate.
As a chairman, David operates in a highly collegiate manner, ensuring that decisions are taken in a consensual way without diluting the scope for imaginative change where required.
He is strongly supportive of management, but equally prepared to hold them to account if the company’s objectives are not being met.
