On Monday 4 January Post Office Ltd (PO) CEO Nick Read announced that applications are now open for two subpostmasters to become Non-Executive Directors on PO’s Board. Applications will be open for four weeks.
In an email to the network, Nick said: “These Non-Executive Director roles will bring a wider Postmaster perspective to discussions and will help the Board make more informed, and better balanced decisions.
“They can provide input about issues that are important to Postmaster businesses, while taking decisions about the future direction of the Post Office in the interests of the company as a whole.
NFSP CEO Calum Greenhow said: “The NFSP welcomes this very positive news and we encourage our members to get involved with the application process.
"Given our understanding of the Companies Act 2006, the NFSP must be very careful not to enter into a situation which would in any way shift our focus away from the needs of the network and compromise our ability to challenge PO. For these reasons, our NFSP Non-Executive Directors will not be applying for the roles.
"The NFSP will, of course, be more than happy to work with the two new Non-Executive Directors and support them in any way we can.”
