The Governance of the RCG is led by the Board with an Independent Chairman and two Non-Executive Directors.

The Board

Alan Giles OBE, Independent Chairman

Alan Giles OBE was Group CEO of HMV Group from 1998 to 2006. Following his retirement from executive life, he has served as Remuneration Committee Chairman, Company Chairman and senior Independent Director at various organisations including Rentokil Initial plc, Fat Face Group, Foxtons plc and the Competition and Markets Authority. He is currently senior Independent Director of Murray Income Trust plc.

Jane Anscombe, Non-Executive Director

From June 2017 until the end of 2020 she was a non-executive director of FTSE 100 Entain and chaired its Remuneration Committee. Over that period, Entain’s workforce grew from 3,000 to over 24,000 (mainly due to the acquisition of Ladbrokes Coral) and its remuneration practices evolved accordingly.
