LONDON / NEW YORK – 3rd June 2020 – Today, Signal AI, one of the leading companies transforming how business leaders make sense of the world’s information, are pleased to announce the appointment of Chuka Umunna, the former Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills, as a non-executive director to its Advisory Board.
Umunna will be working as a strategic corporate advisor on business-critical issues that impact on reputation and narrative – environmental social and governance (ESG) in particular – to help build long-term value for investors and shareholders.
Umunna’s dynamic background across government and business will be invaluable to Signal AI’s growth initiatives. Serving for a decade in numerous senior positions in Parliament, Umunna led on economic, business and trade policy, with ESG at its core. He also spent several years advising businesses on their most challenging disruptive, transactional and advisory matters as a corporate employment lawyer.
Bringing a specialised skill set, Umunna will help Signal AI further apply their technology to build long-term value for investors and shareholders.
Chuka Umunna said: “In order to rebuild our society following this crisis, we must work together to ignite innovation and create wealth, reduce inequalities and ensure that globalisation works for everyone. This is an impossible task without companies like Signal AI. It is vital that we ensure the concerns of all stakeholders are properly integrated into corporate decision making. I look forward to working with Signal AI to help them do this.”
David Benigson, CEO and Founder Signal AI said of the appointment, “Chuka brings a great wealth of knowledge and experience from working across many sectors at the very top level. We are thrilled he is joining the Signal AI fold and I personally really look forward to working with him on our Advisory Board as we head into the next phase of Signal AI’s growth.”
