To what extent are other Company Secretaries concerned about the consequences of the word ‘director’ appearing in a job title when that person is not actually a legal director of the company e.g. IT director, XYZ plc.
Is the potential exposure of being held out as a legal director sufficiently compelling to warrant corrective action such as i) changing the job title to Director of IT, Chief IT Officer or similar or ii) adding a comment to business cards, email footers etc to clarify that the person is not a legal director?
Conversely, it may be that companies feel no action is required since the identities of the legal directors can be verified very easily.
Details of any solutions or that no solution was deemed necessary will be welcomed.
