Juliet Dearlove

Governance Director

Juliet has over 25 years’ experience in the governance field.

In 2021 was named as one of DMJ’s Governance Hot 100 as a Governance trailblazer.

For ten years Juliet was a Company Secretary at JPMorgan Asset Management, with responsibility for The Mercantile Investment Trust plc, a FTSE 250 investment trust founded in 1884 with a market capitalisation of £2bn. She managed the administration of other investment trusts during her tenure, including JPMorgan Japanese Investment Trust plc, JPMorgan Global Emerging Markets Income Trust plc and the launch of JPMorgan Global Convertibles Income Fund Limited, the latter a Guernsey-domiciled fund listed in London.
More recently she has been Group Company Secretary and General Counsel at CVS Group plc, the acquisitive AIM-listed veterinary services group with a market capitalisation of £1.5bn, 500 veterinary practices in the UK, Ireland and Netherlands, and 7000 employees. She managed the Group’s LTIP and SAYE schemes and is especially proud to have persuaded the Board to increase the discount on the SAYE scheme from 10% to 20%, providing a significant benefit to all employee participants. Juliet started her career at H R Owen plc, the USM-listed motor retail group, and as Company Secretary she was responsible for the Company’s transition to the FTSE All-Share index. She was named in the Sunday Times as the youngest officer of a listed company in October 1997. In 2013 she joined the Board of Board Apprentice Global Limited as a NED and was instrumental in the launch of the Board Apprentice scheme. This provides a pipeline of new diverse board directors by enabling suitably qualified individuals to be placed with a host board in order to observe meetings for a period of one year. The Mercantile Investment Trust plc was, amongst other JPMorgan investment trusts, an early supporter of the scheme. It was an extremely innovative concept which continues to demonstrate its value, to the individuals and to the host boards. Juliet was named one of DMJ’s 2021 Governance Hot 100, as a Governance Trailblazer.

I believe the concepts of corporate governance are sound and, if applied in a thoughtful way, they will enhance the success of companies and boards. It is our role to guide and support boards through this process.
