Juliet Dearlove LLB

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.
Juliet qualified as a solicitor in 1994. Over the course of her career, she has worked as Company Secretary of FTSE 250 companies, a national charity, two AIM listed companies (of which she was also General Counsel), and a large international private group. Juliet was also a founding NED of Board Apprentice Global Limited.

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 AIM-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.

Later Juliet worked for Prebon Group Limited, a large international private group which was sold to Collins Stewart Tullett plc in 2004 for £125m, and is now part of TP Icap plc. This transaction took place during her tenure as Company Secretary

Credentials & Awards

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.
