EasyJet chief executive Carolyn McCall is one of four business leaders made non-executive board members at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
The expert government outsiders will “provide oversight and challenge to the department in the development of policy and the management of resources”.
Business and energy secretary Greg Clark said: “These non-executive appointments to the board highlight the department’s commitment to strengthening our relationship with key business sectors.
“Our new board members are ideally placed to help us build an economy that works for all and ensure that we deliver a successful industrial strategy.”
Alex Chisholm, permanent secretary for the department, added: “I am delighted to welcome these new non-executive appointments to the department.
“They bring with them a wealth of knowledge from varied organisations and fast-paced business sectors that will bolster the knowledge and insight of the department as we refresh policy frameworks and work to deliver change.”
