Cornwall Insight appoints a non-executive director
We are happy to announce that Kate Broughton joins our portfolio company, Cornwall Insight, as its new non-executive director, following an introduction from BGF’s Talent Network.
Kate’s experience in the global energy industry was just the right fit for Cornwall Insight, a provider of research, analysis, consultancy and training services for the energy and water sectors.
Kate held various senior roles at Wood Mackenzie, which provides commercial intelligence for the energy, chemicals, metals, and mining industries. She helped develop world-leading digital products and headed up the global research operations function.
Currently, she is a board member of NatureScot, Scotland’s Nature Agency, and serves as chair of Edinburgh and Lothians Greenspace Trust, an independent charity. Additionally, Kate provides advisory services to Edinburgh Innovations, the University of Edinburgh’s commercialisation service.
As an accomplished business leader, Kate is a good match for Cornwall Insight. Our Talent Network team manage one of the largest pools of board-level non-executives in the UK and Ireland. If you’re part of the BGF portfolio and you need board-level expertise, we’re always here to help.
