SNG (Sovereign Network Group) has a skilled and experienced non-executive Board providing the leadership, strategic direction and scrutiny to enable us to achieve our social purpose, while growing sustainably.
To provide insight and challenge, the Board is supported by a committee structure with Board members and independent specialists, covering Audit and Risk, Remuneration and Nominations, Treasury, Major Projects and Investment.
We also have two customer Board members who can bring a customer’s perspective to Board decisions.
