Committee Life – the Remuneration Committee with Georgina Harvey and Matt Higgins
Following a career in newspapers and media, Georgina now has a non-executive portfolio which includes roles at William Hill, Big Yellow and McColl’s Retail Group. She chairs the Remuneration Committee of all of these and is currently SID at McColl’s.
Matt Higgins is a Partner at FIT Remuneration Consultants, having previously been a Partner at New Bridge Street. He specialises in advising FTSE All Share and AIM Remuneration Committees, acting as the Committee’s independent advisor and advising on all aspects of executive remuneration and shareholder communication.
Georgina and Matt will take members through the role of the Remuneration Committee, the key points of tension, how non-executives can add to the discussions, the use of remuneration consultants and the interplay provided by management and the need to set targets. Remuneration Committees are seen as a good home for lawyers, so it should prove to be a very useful session.
