How We Operate

Corporate Governance

Effective corporate governance is the foundation of a sustainable and successful company. Our Board works closely with management to create a culture which promotes integrity, responsibility and putting the patient first. Some of the Board’s core activities include reviewing Shire’s strategy, monitoring performance, risk assessment and succession planning. The Board recognizes the value of diversity and acknowledges that the Company, its shareholders and other stakeholders are best served by a Board diverse in skill, experience, background and gender.

Shire’s governance structure is central to the operation of the Board and the wider group, and is therefore critical to the delivery of sustainable growth for our shareholders and other stakeholders.
