Aston Martin Lagonda Global Holdings plc has announced the appointment of Sir Nigel Boardman as an independent non-executive director with effect from 1 October 2022.
Until earlier this year, Sir Nigel was a consultant to the international law firm Slaughter and May, where he had been a partner from 1982 until 2019. He acted on several large M&A deals for major clients including BHP Billiton, Shell, Marks & Spencer and Vodafone. He is a non-executive director of Arbuthnot Banking Group.
Sir Nigel was previously a non-executive board member of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and chaired its audit committee. He was also a deputy chair of the British Museum and serves as chair of trustees of the charity Help for Heroes. In 2012, he received the Financial Times’ Special Achievement Award.
Last year, Sir Nigel headed the government inquiry into the Greensill Capital lobbying scandal.
Lawrence Stroll, executive chairman of Aston Martin, said: “I am delighted to announce the appointment of Sir Nigel to the board. His extensive corporate experience will be of great value to us and we look forward to working with him as we continue to make strong progress in our vision to become the world’s most desirable, ultra-luxury British performance brand.”
