Shrin Honap believes non-executive directors should bring one key element to a Board and that is ‘curiosity’.
Shrin is a chartered accountant by profession and has held a number of executive and non-executive roles across a range of industries, including Vodafone and Capita, focusing on transformation, programme management and governance.
He brings an all-round understanding to Registers of Scotland of how transformation works and believes staff engagement is key to achieving goals.
Shrin was one of the founders of the successful Internet challenger bank, Egg. He is also a non-executive director at the British Transport Police and Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency, as well as the committee which looks at the setting of budgets for MP’s expenses.
Shrin says the most rewarding part of his role at Registers of Scotland is witnessing the organisation’s digital transformation programme taking shape and “working with a vibrant group of people who want Registers of Scotland to move forward”.
He adds the most interesting fact he has learned about Registers of Scotland is that “the organisation holds registers that go back 400 years and that they map the history of Scotland”.
