FIDIC CEO Nelson Ogunshakin listed on top 100 BAME Leaders in Business Index< back to news

FIDIC CEO (and former ACE UK CEO) Nelson Ogunshakin has been listed on Green Park’s third annual Top 100 BAME Leaders in Business Index to celebrate the professional achievements of Britain’s ethnic minority leadership community and their commitment to delivering positive change.

This year’s Index includes leaders from across the UK private, public and third sectors, highlighting the importance that ethnic minority role models have in helping to inspire the next generation of black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) leaders. Launched by executive diversity recruitment specialists, Green Park, the index is designed to highlight the talent, experience and expertise of ethnic minority leaders who are still currently chronically under-represented at board level in both private, public and third sector organisations.

Green Park applied a strict selection criterion to identify 800 ethnic minority individuals that comprise the talent pool from which the Top 100 were selected, with the majority occupying director, executive and non-executive positions. To establish the final shortlist for the Top 100 BAME Leaders in Business Index, Green Park applies a propriety scoring methodology judged by an independent panel of experts, which identifies candidates’ professional achievements and commitment to delivering positive change. 

The expert judging panel included Ken Olisa OBE, chief executive officer of Restoration Partners; Karen Blackett OBE, chairwoman of Mediacom Plc; Natasha Adams, chief people officer at Tesco; David Tyler, chairman at J. Sainsbury Plc; and Amee Chande, non-executive director of BBA Aviation Plc.
