Women in Defence UK is pleased to announce a significant addition to our Strategic Advisory Board: Denise Wilson OBE, CEO, FTSE Women's Leaders Review.
Denise's appointment underscores our commitment to bringing in-depth industry knowledge and strategic insights to our board. As the Chief Executive of the FTSE Women's Leaders Review, she has consistently demonstrated an ability to navigate complex corporate terrains. With executive roles at established entities such as British Gas and National Grid, her expertise extends beyond leadership to hands-on operational knowledge.
Her board services, including her contributions as Chair of the Royal Academy of Arts Friends and as a Non-Executive Director at Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, provide further evidence of her capacity to offer insights on governance and corporate strategy. Furthermore, her leadership of the Davies and Hampton-Alexander Reviews highlights her direct involvement in fostering gender inclusivity at the highest levels of business.
