What is a Non-Executive Director?

A nonexecutive director (independent director or external director) is a member of a company’s board of directors who is not part of the executive team. A nonexecutive director typically does not engage in the day-to-day management of the organization but is involved in policymaking and planning exercises. {Investopia}
