Clare Chalmers

Clare provides board effectiveness evaluation reviews to the broader private sector, public sector, government and not-for-profit.

Before joining Independent Audit in September 2015, Clare was Chief Executive of IDDAS, a highly regarded board evaluation practice.  Prior to this in 2007 Clare established Rathmullan Associates to provide independent, bespoke and confidential services including client audits, board reviews and compensation and appraisal systems, and gained a deep understanding of the working of boards, through her dealings with FTSE, AIM, private and public companies.
