Former Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi has been appointed non-executive chair of The Very Group, succeeding interim chair Aidan Barclay, who had temporarily filled the role following Dirk Van den Berghe’s departure. Zahawi, who founded YouGov and has held various ministerial roles under several prime ministers, will work closely with The Very Group’s management team to drive sales, profit growth, and explore new business areas. This appointment comes as Zahawi prepares to step down as an MP in the next general election. Zahawi’s extensive experience in digital growth and innovation is expected to usher The Very Group into its next phase of strategic development.
