Definition: is an individual that operates as a non-executive member of the board of directors of a company, while representing another individual or organization such as a credit company or investor. Ordinarily, there are no shareholding requirements presented in front of a nominee director, but if the internal laws of a company demand a share qualification, the said individual has to acquire it. Certain jurisdictions also allow an entire company to be considered as a nominee director of a different company.
