Aberdeen Asset Management (AAM) boss Martin Gilbert has added another boardroom role to his roster.
AAM’s chief executive was unveiled as a non-executive director of Anglo–Swiss multinational commodity trading and mining company Glencore yesterday.
Mr Gilbert is also on the boards of satellite broadcaster Sky, where he is deputy chairman, and a variety of funds managed by AAM.
Glencore’s chairman is Tony Hayward, the former BP CEO who famously told reporters he wanted his life back after the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe in the Gulf of Mexico.
Announcing Mr Gilbert’s appointment, Mr Hayward said: “Martin is one of the leading entrepreneurs of asset management and also has a long track record as a FTSE Non-Executive Director.
“We are delighted he has agreed to join us and look forward to benefitting from his experience and insights.”
