The Directors of OPG remain committed to promoting high standards of corporate governance and, whilst not obliged to comply with UK Corporate Governance Code (‘the Code’), the Board aims to do so in way that is appropriate to the size and complexity of the business.
The Board meets at least four times a year. Board papers include matters relating to strategy including both new and expansionary capital items, operating budgets and monthly management accounts. Non-Executive Directors have access to all information and, if required by them, external advice at the expense of the Group.
The Board presently comprises:
- Arvind Gupta (Executive Chairman)
- Mr Dmitri Tsvetkov ( Chief Financial Officer)
- Ms Avantika Gupta (Chief Operating Officer)
- Mr.Jeremy Warner Allen (Non-Executive Deputy Chairman)
- Michael Grasby
- Jeremy Beeton
Ms Avantika Gupta is OPG’s Chief Operating Officer, a non-board position. She is responsible for the day-to-day running of the operations of the Company whilst Mr Arvind Gupta retains responsibility for the overall business, matters related to strategic direction and for running the Board.
In the Board’s view, this composition ensures an appropriately clear division of responsibilities between the running of the Board and the executive responsibility for the running of the Company’s business.
