Mr. Binks will serve as an independent non-executive chairman, replacing Richard Dellabarca, who has held the role since 2012 – he recently relinquished the position, relocating back to New Zealand, which freed up a key vacancy. Mr. Binks is presently a non-executive director of JDX Consulting Limited, dating back to 2012. Additional stops also include a string of directorships at several venues, including Oxygen Holdings, FinTrU, Client Knowledge, Reuters, and IPGL Ltd, among others, according to information made public on his Linkedin profile.
Mr. Berkeley will be admitted to ISDX’s Board as an independent non-executive director as well, succeeding the role vacated by Nick Moore. He presently is engaged as an active executive director at Citigate Dewe Rogerson, having manned the role since 2001.
According to Patrick Birley, Chief Executive of ISDX, in a recent statement on the board appointments: “We are very grateful for Richard and Nick’s support and contribution to ISDX over the past four years and we wish them continued success in the future. Tom and Michael are welcome additions to the ISDX Board and they will play an active role in guiding the executive team as we grow our business.”
“Both Tom and Michael have strong track records in their respective fields and we believe that they will add significant value as ISDX becomes better recognised as a leading venue for growth companies to access public financing,” he reiterated.
