The advisory council represents a wider business audience, and meets twice a year to offer support and guidance to the institute.
Anderson said: “The work of the IBE is more important than ever and I am really honoured to be involved. Boardooms need to step up and embrace diversity and inclusion, modern governance that is fit for an open, transparent world and also communicate what they do far more clearly. In my work, I am looking forward to making a major co contribution towards IBE thinking.”
IBE president Tim Melville-Ross added: “We are delighted that Iain has agreed to offer the IBE his counsel as a member of our Advisory Council.
“The IBE was established by a group of business people, foreseeing the ethical implications of a globalised world. They came together to establish a hub for discussion, research and practical advice to promote high standards of business behaviour based on ethical values.”
