Knights arrive at SQW Group

SQW Group has added two new faces to it board with the appointment of Sir Michael Lyons and Sir William Wells as non-executive directors.

The latest additions will help SQW to develop two new business areas focused on healthcare and the environment, as well as with the expansion of its existing services. Both directors will also take equity stakes in the company.

Lyons is currently completing a review on the future of local government and finance structures, and was responsible for the 2004 Lyons Review of Public Sector relocation for the Treasury.

Wells is the chairman of the NHS Appointments Committee, which he established in 2001. He is also chairman of the Health Service Commercial Advisory Board, which advises ministers on the effects of policy in the private sector.
