“Linda has founded, developed and led substantial businesses, and her experience as an entrepreneur, global financial services consultant, and professional director will be invaluable to us as we continue our growth as a successful client-focussed investment manager. We are extremely pleased to have Linda join our board and look forward to her contributions”, said Graeme Wong, Chairman of Harbour.
